I frequently help companies hire Product Managers, whether it's making their first hire, scaling the existing team, or bringing in the right senior Product executive and leader. I partner with the hiring manager and interview team to ensure A+ talent is hired each time. This usually includes:
- Identifying company needs, optimizing job posts, determining minimum qualifications and required experience and expertise
- Organizing the end-to-end hiring process, identifying important questions to ask, dividing responsibilities across the team, ensuring process consistency
- Creating challenging homework assignments, evaluating candidate responses
- Filtering resumes, directly interviewing candidates, identifying and following up on yellow and red flags
- Managing candidate debriefs, ensuring a high bar is maintained, selling the right candidate, and even onboarding
While I am very well-connected, particularly in the DC metro area, my focus is on making the right hire from the available candidates, rather than sourcing candidates to add to the pipeline.
