    Iโ€™d be more interested in preparing yourself for the Google PM interview gauntlet once you do get the call. If you can get a pm job at google you can do so anywhere. Good luck and donโ€™t worry about people like CVS bagging on you for YOE in my experience in a lot of cases itโ€™s mostly relative.

      Thanks for the tip. I hope the interview invitation comes through and I can prep for that intensively.

    Also why apply if you intended to ask for a referral here.

    referral from someone you don't know is pretty much useless, they ask internally how well you know the person, how would you rate them, etc.

      In Energy, I managed products that offered solutions to challenges faced by Oil majors through leveraging data. I was able to transfer the skill set while building a personal project and working in a volunteer role before my first role in tech.
