How 5 Product Managers Got Their Start

To get started in product management you need to understand the nuts and bolts of creating a product, as well as how to connect to users so you can best serve their needs. That understanding often comes with experience, but how do you get that experience? The Muse sat down with five product managers to find out about their career paths. “Some started in customer-facing roles, some started as web developers, and some took different paths entirely. But they all landed in their roles for the same reason: They love pulling all of the pieces—from design to development to marketing—together to create an amazing product.” (via @TheMuse)
