How I Became a Product Manager, by Matthew Vitebsky
In this ProductTank New York talk, Matthew Vitebsky tells the story about how he landed a Product Manager job at TIME magazine, where he assisted stakeholders with their entire brand package, including Time Fortune Money, Time Health, and Time Kids. After just one year out of college, Matthew obtained a role as a data architect. “That job made me realize that I didn’t want to work on computers for the rest of my life,” he says. And so his roommate Eric suggested he interview at Time Inc. for a product management position. However, while he did get the job, there are a few key points he wished someone had told him, going into the job.
