I happen to think that being a product manager is one of the best jobs out there. I find it to be very satisfying because I'm in charge of the success of a product. If I do the right things, then my product will be selected by a large number of customers and it will solve their problems. If I don’t do my job right, my company will probably decide to stop offering my product after a while. Ultimately, my career is in my hands. What You'll Find Inside:
As product managers, we all control our careers. What this means is that we need to always be networking because you never know when you may find yourself looking for your next job. As we move through our career, it will soon be important that we learn how to not only manage products, but people also. The way that we land a product manager job is by having a resume that does the work for us. How to create such a resume is a skill that we all have to learn. We don't know it all and so in order to help us to make the right decisions, it can be helpful to find a mentor who is willing to give us good advice. Once we've landed the right job, our work is not over. We need to understand how to get things done effectively and multitasking is not the answer.
