Build a Product Manager Resume Recruiters Will Notice

Your resume is your first point of contact with a potential employer. The way you tell your story matters!

We understand how difficult it might be to capture a recruiter or hiring manager’s interest, especially if they’re getting anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand resumes.

One thing we hear a lot is, that you can’t get into Product Management if your resume, your portfolio, and your LinkedIn profile don’t scream: “I SOLVE PROBLEMS EFFECTIVELY” or " I HAVE TRANSFERABLE SKILLS"

Your challenge might not be that you don’t have the right profile or previous PM experience, it might be the story you tell!

How can you build a dedicated Product Manager resume? Not just by presenting valuable experiences, but also by applying Product Manager skills when writing your resume.

A general rule of thumb when constructing your resume for a product role is to make sure you show that you are data-informed and data-driven. Show the recruiter that you can effectively quantify and narrate your accomplishments. Numbers are easy for recruiters to scan and understand, and will be a real boost for your Product Management resume.
