Hi everyone. My name is David I'm the product manager at Meta. I have an engineering background and start my own company after graduation. The biggest challenge for me was that I didn't know how to package myself, and prepare for case interviews. During the PM Accelerator, I learned how to tell a compelling story, and was able to use the framework that Nancy taught to deal with any type of case questions, including product stance and product execution. Eventually I passed into this and got two offers from both Amazon and Meta. Thanks Nancy! I believe that I could not achieve this without your help

Nancy’s Bootcamp is helpful during my PM job hunting process. I especially appreciate three parts that Nancy provided me: interview preparation, PM routine exposure, and confidence. 

First, she provided great tips for my resume and networking scripts. Her interview templates were extremely helpful for my interviews. Second, it is great to be systematically trained by a real product director and exposed to the PM job routines before stepping into this field. Lastly, she gave us great support and confidence during our job-hunting process. I highly recommend Nancy’s Bootcamp.

I didn't have any PM experience before and at the start of my job search, I wasn't confident about my experience because they were not relevant to product management. I am really happy that I chose this program because it helped me in so many different ways.

Nancy helped me set a strategy to focus my job search on Fin-tech companies to leverage my existing experience. Thanks to that strategy, I got my first offer within three months.

In summary, I recommend PMA to anyone aspiring to be a Product Manager, and I hope to see you guys there.

  • After: Sr. PM at Microsoft

I attended the Product Manager Accelerator program this year.

  • Education:¬†Bachalor in Public Accounting
  • Year of experience: 5 years
  • After: B2C Creator Product Manager at TikTok US. Immigrated to US from Canada

During big tech layoffs and recessions, there are severe competitions. I am glad I enrolled PM Accelerator program. What it helped so much is that it taught me a systematic structure of thinking, and present myself in a product portfolio which won me a job offer from TikTok out of over 1000+ applicants. Regardless you are entry level or Sr. PMs, you need to use the portfolio strategy taught in the program to set yourself apart from the competition. I highly recommend the PM Acclerator program.

  • AfterSr. TPM at Meta

Nancy worked wonders with me...her accelerator program helped unlock interview talent that I thought I never had and landed me 5 offers, which led to my current position as a TPM at Facebook.  Her program helped me articulate sweet and crisp answers to the most difficult interview questions asked in the industry. 

Her program was exactly what I needed...for many years now, I've settled for less and when I thought of giving up on getting a dream job at a Faang company, she armed me with knowledge, courage and strength to pull forward.  I am very pleased with the results of which I couldn't find from many similar programs out there.  The difference lies in the results.  Don't waste your money on other programs out there that just help you get interviews.  Use your resources on methodology that gets you the job and keep it.

Simengdi Judy Xiong

PM Accelerator Progarm helped me repacked my consultant experience into PM related experience and created a customized transition strategy from consulting to FinTech. The PM community is the best place to find like minded people, receive mock interview feedback from coaches and peers. Whenever I ask my coaches questions in each stage of my transition journey, they always give very specific advice based on my unique background and challenges. This is the best product manager program I found! Can’t wait to see you all in the large PM community

Tina Chen

  • Before: Customer Sucess Manager
  • Education:¬†Bachelor in Advertising, Masters of Management
  • Year of experience:¬†3 year
  • After: Product Manager at Xero in 3 months

My resume response rate jumped by 30% as soon as my coach re-wrote my resume to match the PM recruiting needs. After comparing all the PM programs in the market, I found PM Accelerator is the best to land a PM job, as they offer 1:1 mock interviews and tailor strategies of improving your story telling skills, but all other program give general PM training without customization to each student. You should join the PM Accelerator program! Feel free to connect me on LinkedIn for PM course questions.

  • Year of experience: 6 years 
  • After: Sr. PM at Amazon Web Services

Thanks to Dr. Nancy Li's PM accelerator program, I transitioned from a project manager at a healthcare organization to a product manager. I followed Product School and Exponent youtube channels and blogs for a year, but I didn't make substantial progress. However, within 5 months after signing up for Dr. Nancy Li's program, I landed two offers, including a Sr. Product Manager role at a FANNG company. I found three key reasons that differentiated Dr. Nancy Li's program from other resources.

First, Dr. Nancy systematically teaches us product management concepts. Her teaching is so thorough that I found myself referring back to what I learned from her classes after working as a product manager.

Next, Dr. Nancy leads us through hands-on practices with real interview cases weekly. I found her live sessions very helpful and effective. I knew what to expect in interviews and prepared 20+ mocks in a short period. Last, I appreciate the product manager community that Dr. Nancy Li has developed for us. I benefited from learning with alumni and mentors. I love to continue learning and advancing my career with friends and colleagues that I met from this program.

Lori Li

  • Before: Marketing Manager in a Startup

  • Year of experience: 6 years
  • After: Product Marketing Manager at Amazon

Nancy is very knowledgeable in cracking PM interview and coach professionals to find their unique position in the market and leverage what’s available to reach a higher career level. I joined Nancy’s program when i was pregnant with twins. Although I can’t manage to participate in all the live classes, what’s discussed in the first two modules are more than enough to help me get started with my career plan. I was working at a startup as a product marketing manager, with just a couple of years experience under my belt.

Nancy gave me confidence to pursue FAANG opportunities and I landed a PMM offer at Amazon several months later.

 

 Mock interviews with our alumni helped me a lot preparing for the highly intensive interview loop with Amazon. Tips and lessons shared in the slack channel benefit me everyday in my current job as well. I would highly recommend the accelerator program to anyone who wants a career boost, whether it’s for PM or not. You will find something helpful along the way. That being said, I’m still seeking good opportunities to transfer into a PM role.

So I will keep learning from Nancy and the group. At the same time I’m so glad to see more modules and topics are added to the content, which shows the program is adapting to students needs and industry trends. Can’t wait to see more offers from fellow students! Good luck!

Office-hours were super effective and helped practice those skills and framework more thoroughly. The alumni group is very supportive and help you with resources and suggestions throughout the job process.

Most importantly, she gave straight feedback on the improvement areas, particularly on interview skills. The PM Accelerator helped me understand the key factors to land a Product Manager role and shape the way of thinking in developing a digital product. The best part of the program is that we keep practicing various product sense cases until we learn it by heart by using the frameworks that Nancy has created. I do appreciate all the help and consultation that Nancy has provided to me!

I worked in the insurance industry for around 7 years, and I always felt that I wanted to go where I could create the biggest impact for our customers. I began looking into product management but didn’t know where to start. During my research I found Dr. Nancy Li’s PM Accelerator program, and although I looked at other PM programs, there was something special about Dr. Nancy.

She seemed to really care about her students, and her students were landing PM jobs! I saw testimony after testimony, so I decided to give it a go.

 

It has been one of the best decisions of my career. I was able to land my dream PM JOB!!! My life has change dramatically since then. I feel that I have my whole career in front of me, I feel motivated, and excited of where things are going. Some of the things I learned in Nancy’s PM Accelerator program:
1. How does my current role relate into a PM position?
2. What recruiters are looking for?
3. How to write my resume to get the PM interviews
4. How to kill a PM interview
What hiring mangers want to hear, and how to respond to tough questions?
5. Many high-level Product Management Cases, and many more things.
This is my personal experience, but if I could give advice to someone that wants to land their dream PM job it would be to get the program!

Apart from Nancy’s guidance, the live product sense sessions and the resources she provided, one other thing that helped me was the community.

Dr. Nancy’s accelerator program was the missing puzzle piece I needed in my journey to product. Her lessons are concise, strategic and cover recruiting from several essential aspects.

I joined Nancy's PMA program a couple of months back after I got laid off. It was a life-changing experience for me. The coaching that Nancy provided was awesome and it helped me to present myself in a way that I had never thought of before. It provided me all the skills that I needed to make the transition from a technical product manager to the head of product. Without Nancy's coaching and help, I don't think it would have been possible.

I highly recommend Nancy's PMA program for any upcoming product managers and even really senior product managers that are looking to up their games and move into more senior level positions like head of product or chief product officers.

Hi I'm Nicholas, Head of Generative AI at Save The Children International, a NGO with operations in 120 countries that helps more than 50 million children around the world. 

Now I'm working with AI and this is my dream job. Previously in my life, I was struggling a lot like many of you, trying to get right my resume and interviews. I almost forgot my purpose in life, which is to do something that help people.

Through the PMA program I was able to understand that the problem was not my experiences but the way I organized my experience and how to brand myself better. So I'm very grateful for that and I hope you can enjoy the program and achieve your dreams as well.

Nancy is an empathic coach who genuinely cares about her students, either fine tuning experienced product leaders or accelerating the learning curve for first-time product managers. I was impressed by Nancy’s pro-active style and openness to providing personalized advice.

Besides, she is a fun colleague to be around in thought leadership webinars or product management videos.

For those in search of a more meaningful position, I strongly suggest working with Nancy as your product management - competitive edge coach.

I am so glad I enrolled PM Accelerator Program. I had a hard time demonstrating my values and experiences during interviews, as I lack of interview experience and I already held a very senior role in my last company. After repackaging my resume, I was able to land 10 interviews in just 2 weeks. The curriculum and 60 PM case studies helped me systematically study and sharpen my PM skills. The PM community is awesome! I found so many PM peers, mentors, and alumni who can give me customized feedback through 1:1 mock interviews. At the end, I landed 3 offers in 4 months. I believe they can help you land your dream PM offer as well.
