📣 Announcing a new Lewis C. Lin book: The Product Manager Interview by Lewis Lin

My newest book, The Product Manager Interviewis now available!

It's an incredible book.

It reveals the newest, most advanced thinking on how to prepare for product management (PM) interviews including:

  • NEW! 30-Day Facebook PM Interview Preparation Plan including product sense, execution & leadership questions
  • 30-Day Google PM Interview Preparation Plan
  • 36-Day Amazon PM Interview Preparation Plan

Don't miss out.

This is perfect for PM candidates who are looking for step-by-step guidance on how to prepare for specific companies, complete with practice problems and sample answers.

    It also includes one of the most anticipated sections: a reference sheet of nearly 100 assumptions you should know for estimation and analytical questions including facts from the:

    • Smartphone Industry
    • Online Advertising
    • eCommerce
    • Enterprise Software
    • Social Networks

    Lastly, since it is the third edition (previously known as PM Interview Questions), I've made thousands of changes, including major overhauls, revisions, and in some cases complete rewrites of the 164 sample answers in the book.

    With all the time invested, I'm proud to say that you will not find a more detailed product management interview prep book on the market.

    Conquer those interviews,

    P.S. I've also re-released my salary negotiation book under a new, more descriptive title, 71 Brilliant Salary Negotiation Email Samples. Check it out!

    Sample Answer from The Product Manager Interview

    Amazon Product Manager Interview Cheat Sheet by Lewis Lin


    Why? Amazon is hiring twice as many MBAs as any other tech firm.

    Aside from torrential job growth, there's another reason why MBAs should pay attention to Amazon; it's a phenomenal company to have on one's resume.

    This snippet, from my latest book, explains why hiring managers find Amazonians to be the most coveted, right after Google and Facebook:

    What are the best tech companies to have on a product manager’s resume?

    #3: Amazon
    More so than PMs at other companies, Amazon PMs are known to be absolute grinders. Amazon PMs, along with Amazon employees in general, are the only ones known to consistently work 60-hour work weeks. Many work more.

    Tough as nails, Amazon PMs will persist longer than others in impossible conditions.

    While Amazon is not as selective as lower-ranked companies (partly due to the fact they are on a hiring binge), an Amazonian’s grit is commendable and a big difference maker that edge Amazon PMs ahead of others.
