Technology, Product Management

A career in Tech allows for you to be part of a very dynamic industry that is always changing and often the leader in creating interactive and forward-thinking companies and cultures. Successful people in Tech also come from a wide array of backgrounds and college experiences. Tech crosses over from industry to function and include roles from corporate finance in a Tech firm to social media manager at a Marketing firm. Tech also often overlaps with entrepreneurship, as you can see by the constant industry innovation (check out the TED concentration).

As technology organizations grow, they often take on more Product Managers to successfully oversee current products in their portfolio and help launch new ones. Every Product Manager may have unique duties based on their team and the organization, but there are a few commonalities to most Product Manager job descriptions (manage the lifecycle of a new product, monitor timelines, serve as a liaison, oversee products/parts, and create distribution plans). While there is no set path for Product Managers, Product Managers often advance to more senior marketing roles such to become marketing managers and directors of marketing.
