Event Details

If you live in San Francisco, have a technical background, and want to get a job as a Product Manager - this is the perfect event for you!

Gayle McDowell is the author of the book "Cracking the PM Interview", the #1 interview prep book for aspiring product managers.

During this talk, she will teach you how to prepare for PM interviews, what top companies like Google, Amazon, and Microsoft really look for, and how to tackle the toughest problems. This is not a fluffy be-your-best talk; it is deeply tactical and will discuss how the ambiguously-named "PM" (product manager / program manager) role varies across companies, what experience you need, how to make your existing experience translate, what a great PM resume and cover letter look like, and finally, how to master the PM interview questions (estimation questions, behavioral questions, case questions, product questions, technical questions, and the super important "pitch").

Timeline:
6:30 - 6:45: Meet & Greet with wine & delectables
6:45 - 7:15: Guest Speaker Presentation
7:15 - 7:30: Q&A

Meet the Speaker: Gayle McDowell

Gayle McDowell is the Founder and CEO of CareerCup and the author of Cracking the Coding Interview, Cracking the Coding Interview and Cracking the Tech Career.
