Most of the stuff I learned in the classroom isn’t really helping my career. But one thing I learned in college is how to learn.

“I started looking up product manager roles just for fun. Funny enough I found all my jobs by just messaging people on LinkedIn.”

“For a product manager role, understand what your users want, execute, and get it out there.”

“It may look easy how I got the opportunity at Google. But I actually messaged hundreds of people on LinkedIn; hundreds of people even internally at Google too.”

“As a product manager, I had meetings all day and I basically never got time to work. You have to prioritize really well and you have to find out what’s really important at this second.”

“A key part of Process Labs is connecting engineering function to business value.”
