The job search after Product School can be very daunting even for experienced Product Managers. Without any Product Management experience, even with a full understanding of theory and practice of the disclipline, it can be a strong deterrent in getting an initial interview. Oftentimes the hardest part of the interview process is actually getting the initial interview. This informal session will seek to challenge the traditional job searching methods, providing real life experience examples of what has actually worked to procure interviews at great companies, how to navigate the interview process, and finally how to continuously better your interview game.

Main takeaways:
-Resume buzz words actually do get you your first interview
-Learning to control the interview narrative is critical to selling yourself
-Getting your first Product Manager offer is a numbers game as much as it is strategy
