One interesting trend I am observing: Proof of work.
Here is a guy who sends a newsletter on how he would grow various products: Andrea’s zerotomarketing. Another wrote a thread on marketing every day for a month. There are many more examples that you will find online.
Want to get a job as a product manager in a startup without any experience?
Write about the onboarding experience of 30 products (either threads or blogposts). One every day. Then reach out to the founder of a startup and tell them that you will solve their onboarding. It is far better than DM’ing people and asking if they have an opening.
I practice what I preach: How I became a product manager.
