References for Getting Your First PM Job via Product School

Updated: Jun 11

I realized from recent interactions that there was some amount of overlap between my readers for articles and the audience for the Product School talk on Getting Your First PM Job. So, this was an easy approach for me to share reference material from the talk and point to more resources around product management and job hunt.

I do not have a way to add slides, PDFs, or detailed images to the article on Substack, so I’ve linked to the information. Let me know if that doesn’t work for you.


Firstly, here is a recording of the talk. The talk was pre-recorded so this is the version of the recording I had submitted to Product School. Getting Your First PM Job

You can see Product School’s telecast of the talk here on LinkedIn.

Slide Deck

You can find the slide deck with speaker notes here. The speaker notes include some more explanations for the slides. I hope this helps:

  1. Reviewing the information

  2. Adding your notes to the PDF ‘handout’ for future reference

  3. Referring to more details in the speaker notes

  4. Clicking on the URLs to save time searching
