Attracting Students to Product Management
PRESENTATION: Allow me to share my experience as an intern who engaged in product management related activities and brainstorm innovative ways for firms to start building competent product managers even before hiring.
Jackson Morgan: I'm a second year Computational Media/Computing and Management student at Georgia Tech has long wanted to pursue a career in product management. This summer, I had the pleasure of interning at AutoTrader.com, and while I was hired to fix bugs, the company allowed me to experiment with my desired field. As my product management experience in minimal, I don't necessarily have much to provide other than my one-summer experience, but I would love to hear feedback on the subject from other, more experienced product managers.
