From graduating in 2017 to the present, I have been working in the product position for five years without knowing it. They all say that five years is a hurdle, which not only means the change of work focus and ability, but also the increase of anxiety and pressure.
The last time we had a phased review was three email list years ago. It’s time to stop and review the past five years and prepare for the next five years.

Looking back at the university stage, I am most grateful to myself at that time—①choose a career decisively, ②concentrating on study, and ③actively looking for opportunities.
Choose a career decisively: If I know the position of product manager, I have been in this industry for 8 years. I am grateful to the instructor for inviting excellent seniors and sisters to share their career plans with us. I also started from that time. I met a product manager for the first time and became interested in this position. It is not so much that I chose the path of product manager, it is better to say that this position gave me a chance to survive.
Focused learning: After determining the direction, the next step is to complement your skills. Fortunately, the basic skills of product managers are not as difficult to understand as programming. By watching tutorials, visiting the community, reading books, etc., you can learn the basic knowledge. I knew at that time that optics was not enough, and I needed to be able to do it, so I wrote several analysis reports based on what I had learned, and also made a public account to practice operational knowledge (this is the account).
In the early self-study process, I think the most important thing is to stay focused and endure loneliness. My classmates asked me to play ball, and I was reading; my roommate was playing games, and I was watching videos; the lights in the dormitory were turned off, and I was writing a report... After five months, I felt that I was ready for the project. all knowledge.
