The Struggle and Why YOU Should Take This Course
When I first heard about product management, I wasted months trying to learn more about the field. Despite all of my efforts, I was completely lost and felt like I couldn't break into a product role because:
- I had no prior experience in product management and was coming in from a completely different industry
- I had absolutely no idea what a product manager did on the job nor what skills were required
- I had no time nor guidance to figure out what resources I should be focused on learning from
- I wasn't sure if the product manager role would be a good fit for me
- I had no idea how to answer product manager interview questions
- I didn't have the insider tips on how to stand out as a candidate
After years of going through multiple rounds of product management interviews, landing multiple product management job offers, and coaching dozens of candidates on how to break into product management, I wanted to make sure that no one else had to go through the painful experience that I went through to land my first product job.
Since launch, One Week PM has helped 2500+ students around the world learn the most important fundamentals of product management and the insider strategies towards dominating interviews to land a product manager job.
"I've compiled everything that I've learned into this course to help put you on the fast track towards learning about product management, creating your own side project, and landing your first product management job."
"This is hands-down the best course that I've ever taken on the fundamentals of product management and landing a product manager job." - 5/5 stars
