Topic 2: How to tell your family what you do for a living: One journey of a Product Manager that started with the Zack Morris phone Speaker: Jaime Hwacinski One of the hardest questions to ask a product manger is what they do and how they approach building products. In the age of the growth mindset, Product Managers carry with them a u-haul of stories that illustrate the paths to take and land mines to avoid. The secret is ... that there really isn't one way to do the job. Get a sense of how one product manager has survived with her sanity and takes pride in the products she's had the privilege to work on. Come hear a few personal stories as you begin to build your own. To learn more about Jaime, see her bio below.
