A person never honestly knows what interviewers and
recruiters seek when making their case for a product
manager or project manager position.
Accomplishing difficult goals, managing various aspects
of projects are common for experienced workers.

Read an interesting piece by Lou Adler in which he
indicates his admiration for people who have an “achiever
pattern
” in their recent experience.  There is more to your
preparation
if this is how you wish to market your skills:

 - Specifics
 - Motivation
 - Well thought through examples
 - Understanding of what interviewers will be doing with
     both your spoken (screening and on-site interviews)
     and written (resume, etc.) data:  comparison to other
     candidates
 - “Presence” in professional settings, Internet, and in
      person, showing confidence. adaptability and
      desire to learn

This is from a “recruiter’s perspective,” a perspective not
many technical people consider.  He has presented this in
various forums (contains several resources) and it has a
following.   For those with interest in start-ups, business
development and are open to new challenges in business
Adler can be a solid resource.
