His talk, Breaking into Product, will make this almost impossible task seem a lot less daunting. It can seem like a bit of a Catch-22 situation – you need experience to land a role but you can’t get experience without having already had a position. But Simon will explain how it can be done, including tips on how to land an interview and how to thrive in the first few months.
