So excited that you made it to my little corner of the internet! My name is Alison and if you’re like me you’ve been searching near and far for a fulfilling career in the vastness of the tech ecosystem and you’re probably curious about product management.
In a past version of myself I enrolled in a coding bootcamp for two reasons: 1) I couldn’t find a job and didn’t know how to get one 2) I thought programming was the only tech job and that coding could save me. After many trial, error, and career pivots, not only did I realize that the thought of coding as a career gave me a pit in my stomach, I stumbled on product management. Immediately I knew this was what I was meant to do. From that point on I spent the majority of my waking time scraping together a personal roadmap to learn everything I needed to land the role. Since then I’ve been obsessed.
It was difficult finding a blueprint when it came to fundamental product skills and resiliency that also encompassed a holistic approach to learning. Coincidentally, in another past version of me, I also learned how to build educational curriculum through a holistic lens; something that is super important to me. This is why I built Product Manager Garden – a platform where you can choose the seeds you plant and the skills you want to harvest 🌱
