FREE EBOOK: Cracking the PM Interview
How to Land a Product Manager Job in Technology
“A resume isn’t read; it’s skimmed. A resume screener will glance at your resume for about 15 seconds (or maybe less) to make a decision about whether or not to interview you.This forms the guiding principle of resumes. A resume should be optimized for that 15-second skim.”
