We are pleased to have a member of our group and former product manager turned VC, Charlie O'Donnell speak to us about the challenges of job-hunting in the current market. Charlie mentioned a few of the frustrations we are all familiar with: 1) Companies are unresponsive around job posts 2) Not enough interesting jobs 3) Too many people to compete with 4) Differing interpretation of what a product mgr even is. 5) No way to tell if a company is worth working for 6) Takes too much time 7) Companies aren't seriously hiring As well as a few questions that job-hunters in high tech product management typically ask themselves: 1) What/how can I offer a company--sharpening the message/offering 2) How can I get my name out there so that companies come to me 3) Where can I create better experience for myself to improve my resume. Charlie has served as a career coach in the past and can offer quite a bit of insight. More details will be added soon.

    Great job Sid and Beja. Having a Venture Capitalist speak gave a very new perspective on things. I have suspected for some time that waiting for Product Management postings wasn't necessarily the best approach and this session confirmed that. The thing that the meetup did do was give me an action plan on how to approach this new type of job search. I found this very useful.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
