    30 hours/ week at principal level is too less.. level down at Microsoft and maybe she can accomplish that at senior by being really good

    Takes 30 secs to download the app and get responses. Tell her that.

      She’s currently not working. Doesn’t blind need a work email to register?

      She can create one using her LInkedIn profile.

    To do it officially she would probably need to take a pay cut or pitch that she can drop a level and put in the same quality of work as the lower level peers in 30 hours per week.

    To do it unofficially she would need to pick a company that already has a reputation for moving slowly, good wlb, and where she is likely to ordinarily outperform her peers and then probably still need to do the same job somewhat faster than her peers to make up for the lost time and plan to occasionally work full hours when needed. PM is a hard job to cut corners on (when done right) so nothing is guaranteed in the “unofficial” route.

      How does one find such opportunities?

      To go the official route you could maybe network your way into it or make it clear when you first apply.

      To go the unofficial route you need to have some sort of sense of what other companies are like, so it helps to ask people or do research.

    Most pm jobs at msft would qualify for that.
