As a Business Marketing major at Northeastern University, Current Product Manager Intern at Salesforce, Previous Product Manager Co-Op at GE Lighting, I am always asked about how I broke into the competitive world of Product Management (PM).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies have shifted to remote and virtual internships for this coming summer. Performing well in an in-person internship is difficult enough, but remote internships bring a whole new set of challenges.
How do I break into Product Management? What can I do to become a stronger PM? What skills do I focus on?
