Round 1 (Telephone Interview)
Q1: Introduce yourself
A1: According to the JD of the interviewed position, I learned which experiences the interviewer may be more interested in on his resume, make a secondary Latest Mailing Database statement, highlight some of his strengths and try to be what the opponent does not have, such as my multiple entrepreneurial experiences from 0-1.
Q2: What do you think was the experience that had the greatest impact on you, and what did you gain from this entrepreneurial experience?
A2: The last paragraph (the one where the individual's role is most relevant to the product manager is selected); First of all, he analyzed the background of the project, and then demonstrated the ability to exercise through this project through the results achieved, and finally expressed his love for the position of product manager because of this project. Then, I focused on some of my capabilities in demand analysis, market/competitor analysis, and some of the PM advantages of being a "project manager" as a technical product manager.
Q3: In response to the project, ask me the details of market research before the project starts?
A3: This question examines one of the basic qualities of a product manager – market analysis.
So how to do market analysis?
This piece can actually ask Baidu, which is roughly how to obtain reliable data, understand some user needs and capacity (size) of the market. When I know what market research is doing, my answer also becomes simple, of course, there is a small tip here, in order to make the interviewer listen more comfortable, I chose a storytelling language style to narrate, so as to be as frank as possible, and in the specific research method, 1234 listed the steps, so that the expression as logical and clear as possible.
Q4: Asked in depth about the content on some resumes.
A4: This piece is actually to suggest that everyone use the "STAR" rule to answer, and then it is recommended that all the experiences on the resume be reviewed in depth before the interview to ensure a fluency and systematization of the answer.
Q5: Asked about the time available for weekly internships and the arrangements for the later stages on campus
A5: Here is also a question that interns will basically ask in the interview, the company definitely prefers interns with plenty of time, which is also an important indicator for the interviewer to weigh the candidates, after all, the cost of recruiting + cultivating new people is still quite high, so when answering, within the scope of their own conditions, the time is arranged, so that there is enough time. To put it bluntly, it is to try to tell the interviewer that his time is more flexible and he is more eager to enter the company.
Q6: What questions do you have about the position you are interviewing for?
A6: Since it was the first time to come to the big factory for internship, I mainly asked about the interviewer's department and business, and what needs to be done in the future, if you can, you can learn in advance. Of course, there are actually many questions that may add points to this piece (for reference only), such as asking a product learning process question to reflect the enthusiasm for learning.
Express your love for the company and your love for the job by answering specific inquiries about the company's internal activities; Ask the interviewer in the line of questions to set off the interviewer's ability, etc., small tips are coming again, it is recommended that after the interview, you must add your interviewer's personal contact information to facilitate the follow-up make-up lessons.
Round 2 + Round 3 (Offline Interview)
It was a back-to-back interview, the second round was my future mentor and the third round was my later leader.
The location is in a conference room in the Science and Technology Park (the first time I went lost), the interview was about an hour (the chat was very high, because it occupied the meeting time of other students, and it was knocked on the door to shift the position), the overall main resume + business surface, on the one hand, or the resume to dig again, on the other hand, the analysis of business problems, the following simple list of more representative questions.
Q1: Why did you make such a product at that time?
A1: This question was asked after the fact, so I subjectively translated the question into "Why did you think such a product could be made at that time?" ”
The so-called "heaven, time, place, and people, the three shall not be allowed, although victory and disaster." So the answer is probably around this idea, opportunities, market environment, conditions, team members and personal reasons. I want to convey to the interviewer that this is an organized and planned teamwork. In the later work, I also found that when the product manager is mining the needs and evaluating the needs, the "why" is also a problem that the product manager often thinks about, both to have a global view and to pay attention to the details.
