  • Pros: 

    HIRED sounds like a good way to get people into Product Management, a growing discipline in software development, and many companies

    Cons: 

    HIRED can feel like the old Churn&Burn-Learn to Flip Houses scheme, and offers vague explanations of what a PM is or why they're needed

    Product Management in many respects is a fairy new and often amorphous role, often different from company to company. HIRED's promise "Get a Career in Product Management" feels even more amorphous. I'm a naturally cynical (but optimistic) person so take what I say with a grain of salt. HIRED's book feels about as organized as Product School's "Proddy" awards (probably because they're the same company) unorganized, with a lack of definition for user (or in this case Student or Customer) to really use.

    I love the idea of getting people into Product Management, it's a great multifaceted role that gives it's practitioners access to many roles in a company. I just don't have faith in this approach (Happy to be proven wrong though)

    Mr. N TL Frown has never used this product.

People get into Product Management with the dream of building awesome products at companies like Google, Slack, Facebook etc. But most of us don't really have the roadmap for getting those jobs. With insights from people who actually work at these companies, "Hired: How to Get a Product Management Job" does what it says on the tin.
