Hi, I AM POLINA
I am an experienced product manager from Portland, Oregon & co-founder at She | Aspired - a career coaching program for aspiring women product managers.
You cannot overstate the value of a side project, especially for someone who wants to break into a new career. You will not only stand out, but you will also be much better prepared for the actual job! From my personal experience I know that building a product with a team is much more fun, efficient, and rewarding and at the end of the day, your job will be to manage cross-functional teams, so you better start practicing early.
The Side Prjct is actually my side project to help you all get started.
