One of the most common inquiries I get through this blog is from people wondering how they can transition from their current position to product management. I usually take the time to send honest and constructive feedback to each inquiry, so I figured it was time to write a blog post on the topic.
Leaving my legal career to work in tech was a long (but exciting) journey. I spent about a year as an engineer before transitioning into a product management role. As prepared as I felt I was, I’ve learned so much during my first few months as a product manager.
