Product Management Mentorship
Hello, future or current product manager 👋
If you stumbled across this page, you are likely looking for ways to grow your career and/or answer questions about your current track. I am happy to provide 1:1 virtual mentorship. And if you find yourself thinking - “Who the hell are you to mentor others?” check out my About Me page!
Now, because there are limited hours in the day, I can’t singlehandedly mentor a lot of people, so I decided to go down the application route. All you need to do to apply is fill out a form with some basic information.
Form for the current cohort is closed. Stay tuned for future openings!
|Q3 2020 (January, February, March)||DECEMBER 6, 2020: Applications closed for current cohort. I am currently working through the backlog of submissions.
DECEMBER 6, 2020: Introduction invitations sent to 100 applications.
DECEMBER 7, 2020: Intro sessions started.
FEBRUARY 15, 2021: Intro sessions for the Winter cohort are done! Doing follow-up calls and resume reviews.
Will this cost me anything?
Unless you consider time spent learning about product management as cost, then yes. Otherwise, no - this is absolutely free.
I am not in North America. Does this disqualify me?
Absolutely not. This opportunity is available to anyone around the globe. As a matter of fact, I’d really enjoy talking to folks outside North America to help train them on the product management career track.
Can you get me a job as a product manager?
I like to think that the more you learn about product management, the more prepared you will be for future product management jobs, or execute better in your current job. This opportunity is about getting you prepared, so the answer is not really, or better said - not directly. I am not doing this to recruit or refer.
How does mentorship here work?
We set up regular sessions over Skype/Google Meet, through which we discuss your questions and approaches to growing as a product manager. In certain cases, we may have conversations over email in the interest of time. The cadence will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
I submitted the form. Now what?
I’ll reach out to you personally over the email address that you specified once mentorship slots become available.
Can you review my resume?
Yes - if you are applying for product management jobs. We can do that as part of our regular communication once assigned a mentee slot.
Can you mentor me in anything other than product management?
No. Not that I don’t like talking about code, machine learning, or building computers, but there are people that are more qualified than me in those domains, and have more specialized experience.
Can I apply even if I am not working as a product manager right now?
Totally! Always happy to help new and aspiring product managers.
