At its core, a product manager's job is to understand what consumers need and to develop products to meet those needs. That could mean creating new products or extending existing products. In either case, it means prioritizing needs, working with product development teams, setting product release deadlines, and often, leading cross-functionally by orchestrating the efforts of marketing teams, sales teams, PR, and other functions that will drive awareness of a new product. Product management responsibilities can vary greatly across industries. You'll find product management positions in everything from commercial food companies to home goods stores to software companies and beyond.
The education required to become a successful product manager can vary across industries but more times than not, companies are looking for college graduates with a design, marketing or technical degree. Strong product managers often have a business sense, technical mindset, eye for design and a knack for project management.See Job ListingsGet Job Alerts
