How did you make the move from being in marketing to becoming a Product Manager?
I come from a marketing background, so before getting into Product Management I’ve already had this product mindset, even though back than I still didn’t know what exactly Product Management was and where I could learn about it. Luckily, a friend of mine who was working in the field, told me about a great company that happened to be hiring a Product Manager with marketing skills. She helped me understand the responsibilities of that role and gave some practical advice, which I found to be very helpful. So finally I thought, “Why not? This field could be right for me! My background is marketing, but my field of studies is management, both of these experiences could help me complete the role.’’ I wanted to try something new and that was the reason why I’ve accepted the challenge.
