How I found my job as VP of Product at Netflix after a two-year sabbatical: 1. Figure out what you seek. 2. Make the job come to you, and 3. Be realistic about timing.
This sounds similar the approach I used to find my first product management role. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20141004134541-9712645-how-i-got-my-first-valley-based-product-management-job-in-5-weeks
Very helpful! I love how you shared this story. Quick question: how did you ask people to meet with you in step 2 without it being too transactional?
I'm guessing it's you wanting to meet other product leaders. Or were you upfront that you were looking for a new role and you're meeting with recruiters, product leaders, and CEOs?
Great tips and strategies in finding what you want, thanks Gib for sharing your experience, really helpful!
