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:
- 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
- “Presence” in professional settings, Internet, and in

development and are open to new challenges in business
Adler can be a solid resource.
