Product Management Directors

Tips for Entry

Get a part-time or summer job in a product management department or a company that offers product management services. Look for job listings on the Product Development and Management Association's Web site, https://jobs.pdma.org.

Read publications such as https://productmanagement.buzz to keep up with news and developments in product management and development. 

Set up an informational interview with a product management director to find out how they got started in their career and what advice they can share. Ask your school's career services office for help with locating an interested director.

Join a professional association to meet people working in the field and learn about career opportunities. The Product Development and Management Association, for example, offers student memberships.
