      But keep interviewing. Any chance of getting an offer is still better than no chance (no interviews).

      Honestly, the best way to learn product is to join a startup as a cofounder/founding member. Your survival will depend on finding product-market fit, and you will develop a pretty solid bullshit detector for when you eventually land a big co. product job where they like to waste time on things like “delivering value” and “making an impact”. Having been through a startup teaches you that the only thing that matters is whether people are willing to pay for your product or not. Everything else follows from there.

    In the same position :) try startups is my opinion so far, or go into a product marketing or dev route and transition later
