Join us for an AMA session with Nupur, Kartik, and Iris on product management at big companies and startups, building side projects, and tips to land your next role, especially for aspiring and junior PMs.
You also have a chance to submit your questions to us before the session using the code: #HELPYOURPEERS at www.sli.do
A few things about this session to make it more fun and interactive: 1. Bring your favorite beverage. 2. Keep your camera on during the session. 3. Come with at least one question.
This is going to be an informal session where we will answer your questions and share our experiences. We will also talk about what inspired us to build this platform and give you tips to build your own product.
About your mentors:
Nupur is a Product Manager at Google and Kartik is a Director of Product at Tableau (now a Salesforce company). We, Nupur and Kartik, started thinking about an initiative to help our peers when we started hearing about the news of layoffs in our circle of friends. It was personal to us as a result, but little did we (just as anyone else) realize the enormity of the crisis and the ensuing economic hardships that would follow. Since then we have been fortunate enough to have over 250 incredible mentors who signed up and helped grow our initiative. We have been able to help 100s of candidates as a result.
Iris Guo is a rising senior studying Finance & CS at the University of Waterloo. She joined Help Your Peers as the Chapter Head in Canada because she resonated with the mission of helping mentees to achieve the next employment. In fact, she secured her Product Manager internship working on SaaS security products in fall at BlackBerry during the time she’s working at Help Your Peers while being mentored by Nupur. She helped to start a non-profit openmeal.org during COVID-19 to bring food to the table for people in need by supporting struggling restaurants. She has worked at 2 start-ups as a product manager at KuzoClass (EdTech) and Foundersbeta (start-up community).
