Does Google hire into its APM program without a technical degree, even if it’s from a top school? I studied economics and work as an APM now with 1 YOE, wondering if it’s even worth applying or if all candidates have CS backgrounds. I regret studying Econ over CS!

    No, APMs need a technical background.

      Since I only have one year of experience as an APM, the PM roles seemed out of reach. Most that I looked at required 5 years of previous PM experience. Are there roles at Google that I might not be seeing?

      No, your assessment is probably correct.
