Haven’t had a lot of luck lately finding a new job. I currently work as production support at a bank but looking for a product management type of role (that doesn’t require a coding background). My top choices are Facebook and Spotify, anyone have any advice on how to get my resume noticed?

      I would even be open to doing a boot camp or reviewing material on my own for awhile

      I did a year of business management on my first rotation in my program. Working on moving internally, been a long and slow process

      I would say too early for MBA.

      Recommend Agile Product Owner training, and a product boot camp. Then find a product owner role.

    Spotify is incredibly difficult to get into right now. We get about 300,000 applications every year.

    You'd have a better chance at getting hired at Google, Apple, or Facebook. Best of luck.

      Disagree. Spotify is bleeding talent and has trouble replacing it due to its stingy equity offerings. It’s always been the training ground for google and it will continue to if it doesn’t start paying better. Working on “cool” things only goes so far when you’re clearly being taken advantage of at the expense of the c-suite and early investors. OP, give it a shot. It’s much more difficult to get a job at google or Facebook.

      All companies lose talent. My section of the company (R&D) hasn't really lost that many qualified engineers. Compensation has been fine for me. Salary yes, has been stingy, but I negotiated hard for my equity stake and came out great.

      I worked at a FAANG before this and would say Spotify has been more restrictive with candidates.
