Got a call from a recruiter for a TPM gig then they said my experience is better suited for SWE. I told the recruiter I likely wont do well since I generally suck at SDE interviews which is why Im a PM. They pushed so I said if they insist, Ill do it.

Now the recruiter wants me to do both SWE and PM interviews in that order. SWE onsite is next week. Am I royally boned? Any advice?

      Any reason you aren’t going for the product management role at google ?

      I am... I was contacted for TPM at google originally and asked to do SWE and TPM loops by the recruiter since I was a dev before. I’m going for both, just SWE first.
