Do whatever it takes to land a job!
Do your best to win the Product Manager job interview! Here are 8 actions you can invest in to be best prepared for the upcoming recruitment meetings:
[sidenote: This post assumes you have a job interview lined up — you know that job requirements, company, and product]
1) Identify the company’s vision/mission, strategy, values, market position, and what problem they fix — Those basics will allow you to start any interview well. In my experience, knowing that before starting interviewing is expected of you. If not, you can have additional time to prove you are the best candidate that would otherwise be spent on introducing the company and the product.
2) List the competitors of the Product you might soon manage — This is part of understanding the market and action that demonstrates you are ready to go above and beyond! We warned though — this might not come up organically from the interviewer, but use this knowledge in your answers.
