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.
