This Guide is crafted to help anyone, from fresh graduates to career switchers, ramp up on the product management role and the interview process for product managers at top tech companies.

The insights, tips and frameworks included here come directly from PM leaders at top companies like Google, Amazon, Facebook, Stripe and more.

The goal of the PM Getting Started Guide

The ultimate goal of this Guide is to arm you with the relevant context, so you can kick off your product management recruiting process with confidence.

At RocketBlocks, we strongly believe that success in PM interviews begins with a deep understanding of the situation and context. This allows you to separate the signal from the noise, drive to the heart of an issue and set yourself apart from your peers.

This guide is broken down into three key sections:

  1. The role and career path of a PM
  2. PM interviews & the required skill sets
  3. How to prepare for interviews

Warning! Cuidado! Achtung!

If you're already deep into your product management interview preparation (e.g., you've already made it to the second rounds of Google, etc), this Guide may not be the best use of your time (but our core RocketBlocks PM prep platform might be).
