Seven Dangerous Myths of the Job Search

I have helped hundreds of Product Managers land notable roles. I have had the privilege of celebrating with them and hearing their stories, but it is not without doing the work.

I don’t pretend that the job search is not a difficult feat. It can be daunting and tedious. Not to mention, the fear of not choosing the proper role can be stifling. But, the mindset by which we walk into this process can change it all. So, it’s vital to debunk the myths that are holding us back. 

Your job search should not be stressful. Instead, it should be intentional and give you more clarity than you had before. And most importantly, it should land you the role that will grow you, raise your standards, and make you happy.

Over the years, I have come across seven myths that have continually caused Product Managers to create their own roadblocks. Together, we unravel them.

Here are my seven dangerous myths of the job search:

  1. Product Management doesn’t pay as well as other professions
  2. Only Product Management experience counts.
  3. I have to apply for 20 jobs a day.
  4. I am getting so many inbound requests.
  5. I cannot make the transition because I have not done Product Management before.
  6. I need to take a junior role because I am transitioning into product management.
  7. I have not worked in a product-led environment, so I should not apply to Google or Facebook.
