What most excites you about your new job?

Working with content partners in streaming tech.

Where were you previously?


What was your preparation strategy?

I prepared for about 2-3 hours a day for months leading up to the interview. I studied the book "Cracking the PM interview," learned about structured product frameworks, developed and leveraged my network, and did three mock interview sessions.

What was the hardest part of the whole interview process?

Knowing what to focus on.

Did any of the interview questions stand out?

It was a behavioral question: "Who's the most annoying person you've worked with?" I think this was a trick question.

Do you have any final tips for other candidates?

Plan out the interview process and take 3-4 months to prepare instead of rushing into the next role.

What coaches would you recommend working with?
