Looking for a mentor who has been a Product Manager~5 years.

Currently, I have interned as PM, worked as a student innovator at Google, mentored Stanford’s online ML course, and will soon be starting as an APM.

Since PMing is something that I still getting a hang of, apart from just reading books, it would be really helpful to learn from someone’s experience being in the role...

Would greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks!

    Rather than conduct such a search on Blind, I'd start networking within your company. Not only will that create more personal introductions, but it may allow you to make more meaningful connections that have some relation over time. Try asking your manager when you start.

      Yup for sure! However, I also wanted to have an outside perspective on PMing as a practice and how a certain situation would be approached at their org

      Still. Better to start from your network, using PMs you know from LinkedIn or such and being clear with your ask :-)
