“But I Need Experience First!” - The Classic Catch-22
It can be tough to break into that first role. The company wants someone with experience, but you need a job in order to gain experience!
This is especially true for a career switch into Product Management, which has no standard path to break in.
What do you do?
The key is to do real projects, learn by doing and prove your ability to create value. (We talk about that a lot, don’t we?)
This is exactly what the Sprint program with Co.Lab offers.
Co.Lab is a special place. You get to focus on product strategy, and then move towards leading a cross-functional team in building and shipping a real MVP (minimum viable product). You'll surround yourself with a powerful community of peers and top tech leaders so you can kickstart your career in Product Management (PM).
Alum from Co.Lab work at companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Shopify, and more.
By committing just 2-5 hours a week for 4 weeks, you can build that PM Portfolio that will blow hiring managers’ socks off.
And at only $500, it’s a low-cost investment, with a high ROI for your career.
Plus, you can use code CAREERHACKERS for an extra $50 off.
The next cohort begins Feb. 20. No experience or prerequisites needed to join.
