Impact of the current pandemic

Nancy is an empathic coach that 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.
Before: A Food Science Master student
After: Product Manager at Baidu
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.
AFTER: Became a Technical Program Manager at Amazon
Nancy is a very knowledgeable mentor. She teaches only practical lessons in her course. She not only taught me how to best present myself in an interview (which later led to a full-time offer), but helped me to change my mindset and become a more confident person. She has tons of experience helping people from different backgrounds and has tailored answers to all your questions. The content in her course also helps me with my day to day work. I decided to take her boot camp even after getting an offer just to learn more from her. I strongly recommend her course.

Nancy's accelerator provided very comprehensive instruction on how to apply and interview for the PM position. I can immediately apply the framework and strategy learned from the course to many interviews, which greatly helped with my interview preparation. She is also a coach who goes above and beyond. Apart from teaching interview and career development techniques that can be used in day-to-day work, she also encourages her students to be more confident and proactive at work.

Nancy is an amazing mentor. When I started transitioning into Product Management career, I got to learn a lot of valuable information through her on how to prepare a very concise resume, she has a huge database of questions which I tried to answer them using the frameworks she taught me. She is very good at coming up with new and efficient frameworks. Also, the live training she provides in answering behavioral, product sense, execution, metrics, strategy questions helped me a lot in not only preparing for the interview but also taught me how to become an efficient Product Manager. She has great examples from her career to boost your confidence. She is always available to answer your questions any time of the day, any career advice you need, how to negotiate for a better offer and also she has a very positive vibe in her. She is very patient in answering any kind of questions you have. I am even planning to come back to her in the future to advance my career and I highly recommend her mentorship.

Nancy's accelerator has immensely helped me in my job search process. From getting more interviews to actually start thinking from the lens of a product manager, Nancy helped me improve my skills and thought process. Her networking ideologies were also great which helped me bag more referrals and land more interviews in top companies. Her constant support and motivation throughout the job hunting process is something I am sure no one will find it in any of the other accelerators that may exist! If you want to become a better PM and get more interviews and learn how to ace them then I strongly recommend this amazing accelerator!
Con-founder of ProductVision
Was confusing of career path
Before: MBA Marketing at Columbia University
After: Product Marketing Manager position at Linkedin
I am very grateful and fortunate to meet Nancy that I was confusing and considering which career path to choose from Consulting vs Tech. I followed Nancy's guidance. I passed my pre-final round PM interview with a big tech firm after 1 month of joining the Bootcamp. Nancy really inspired and encouraged me ranging from domain knowledge, network strategy, how to get the offer in the most efficient way! I always came to Nancy for advice whenever I was facing key career decision making even though I've already graduated from the Bootcamp. She's being a true supporter when we were in the Bootcamp and beyond.

BEFORE: Always wanted to become a product manager but didn't know how to start
AFTER: She has successfully transitioned to PM
Nancy is amazing, She provides end-to-end coaching in finding a new job, something that we have been missing in Chicago Booth. She will tell you, why your resume does not receive a high response rate, how to fix it and what additional skills/certifications to receive. Nancy also has a huge network of hiring managers who she will refer you to and conduct mock interviews with you to prepare. I highly recommend her.

AFTER: 2 weeks after joining the bootcamp, Anna received her very first internship offer
Nancy helped me get my first internship in two weeks during the pandemic! Her networking strategies are SUPER helpful, something you cannot just learn out of yourself! I was struggling and sending out resumes everywhere on job websites without getting much response back. After 2 weeks of attending Nancy's bootcamp, I connected with my boss using Nancy's networking scripts and tips. Now I am the project manager in my company. Meeting Nancy and joining her Bootcamp was the worthiest thing I did during the quarantine.

There were many red flags during the negotiation process

Nancy is honestly invaluable — being able to agonize in front of a rational human being was incredibly helpful and clarifying. She really helped maximize my amazon offer and improved my negotiation skills dramatically.

Business Analyst on Wall Street
Joined Nancy's Negotiation Workshop for career development purposes
BEFORE: Jackie didn't know how to say NO to her coworkers
AFTER: Now she learned to stand up for herself.
I attended Dr. Nancy Li’s Negotiation Power workshop which I found amazingly informative and helpful. It impacted me with new ways of thinking and new points of view for the mindset change. I enjoyed meeting the new professionals with the common or different concerns and interests to discuss and share the new insight and ideas. If you are Yes person, this workshop can help you change your mindset to make you wise and smart not only in the job search, offer negotiations, but also in the life and other opportunity negotiations. With the powerful negotiation skill set, you will find that this can help you effectively build up your confidence and widen the opportunities for the overall personal and career development. The workshop is so worthwhile for the time and effort you invested to perfect yourself.
Received a low-ball offer at first
Nancy helped her with offer negotiation
Annie's final offer provides a 40% rise comparing to the previous one
I received an offer from a company I really wanted to work with, however, the initial offer made me sad. Dr. Nancy Li helped me to turn it up with her knowledge of people's operations, psychologies, and the right mindset and skills of negotiation and communication. With her consulting, my final offer provides a significant rise compared to my previous. Dr. Nancy Li was very responsive, trustable and always hold me up during the negotiation process. What's more is that I can apply the philosophy/skills to other situations when collaborating with people and vendors, etc! If you are not comfortable with your offer as me and do not know what to do and how, Nancy is definitely the right person who can help! The whole consulting process completely worth the time and money to obtain so much precious knowledge and skills that not only benefit once but also long terms. If I have the opportunity, I would like to learn more by attending her classes later.

Dr. Nancy is the most passionate, brave, intelligent woman I have ever met in my life, her story inspires me. In one of her negotiation workshop, she held my attention for the whole session. I learned a lot from her, also from the other attendees. Her workshop was based on abundant data and research, thoroughly organized with touching stories, interactive exercise and practical tips, which makes her workshop special and personal. You will not only learn negotiation skills from her workshop, but also you will gain a brand new understanding of people and mind on a deeper level, which will help you to achieve the success and happiness you want in your life.
