Mr. FAANG PM
Big tech product manager hoping to improve odds of entering the C-suite in the future. Applied to top schools in the past before FAANG, but was dinged, likely due to low GPA–mother was/is battling cancer. Didn’t have big brands on resume, so I’m hoping that recent move to name-brand-tech will give me some credibility.
