Reviews for Markus

It was interesting to hear from another Product Manager about the career trajectory in the profession. One phrase really struck me, “It’s hard to find your second product manager job. After that recruiters will be reaching out to you to offer you some positions at their companies.”

Markus helped me to identify the problem in my [application] -> [offer] funnel. That was my resume and cover letter, which were too generic. He also provided some examples on how to employ STAR technique to improve my resume. Last but not least, Markus provided some additional resources that might be useful during the PM job search.

Our session was very helpful. You open up a lot of possibilities that I haven't thought about. I eager to try to apply everything we discussed and hopefully it will yield the expected results.

I found very easy to talk to you, very receptive and understanding. Obviously very knowledgeable as well.

I'm looking forward for our future meetings.

I had a very helpful chat. Even though I wasn't necessarily at the right door with my question (my own mistake), Markus, as being a structured wide range thinker, had truly useful and good suggestions and guidelines on what to execute to get closer to my goal. Supportive & smart advisor. Thank you.
