Key insights from the event

Because of dynamics of the role, it depends a LOT on experience (company is giving you leadership of that product). Adeniyi took a lot of unpaid opportunities to get experience to prove to employers about practical experience. To get volunteer opportunities, Adeniyi talked to a lot of people (want to learn/shadow some PMs). To get volunteer and mentorship, make sure you can offer value. It must be shared value relationship. How to help the company grow as an intern (took PM course, will help company/mentor). “Sell your value.”

Talk to customers, get that experience. Tell your story!! Think about how you add value to the product.

Day in Adeniyi's life: have daily standup (10-15 min) checkup with team to get updates on progress, plans, any blockers. You NEED to make sure blockers are addressed to improve productivity (meet deadlines and follow product roadmap). Look at reports from marketing and other teams. Prepare documentation (user stories), plan sprints (2-week sprint). Prioritization (to meet stakeholder requirements).

Most important takeaway: talk to users! dig deep into what they need, not just what they want.
