Career Pivots: Product Management Masterclass

Did 2020 throw a wrench in your career path? Did it pause your progress right when you were getting somewhere? You’re not alone. With change as the only constant, how do you stay resilient and adapt to unplanned pivots? Luckily, we have an answer.

In collaboration with OpenMeal, Lisa has graciously volunteered her time and expertise to put on this hour-long masterclass. The class will be 40 minutes with 20 minutes set aside for a Q&A session.

She'll share lessons that she's learned from her most recent career path into Product Management, including how to: 

1. Translate your past work experience into transferable skills for a future Product Manager role 

2. Utilize proven networking tips to get your dream job 

3. Connect with a network of aspiring Product Managers

✨ As an experienced “pivoter”, Lisa has taken the path less traveled – from mutual fund data analyst to food writer; startup founder to aerospace product management; USA to South Africa to Taiwan; she’s seen it all. She’s truly a jack of all trades, with nothing holding her back. With the number of changes she’s faced and skills she’s gathered, who wouldn’t wanna learn from her?

How will I get my Zoom link?
The link with instructions will be sent to all registered donors 24 hours before the start of class. However, if you sign up within 24 hours of the class, you will receive the link one hour before the class begins.

✨ About OpenMeal 

OpenMeal was created when a bunch of friends came together to brainstorm how to best support struggling business owners and unemployed individuals in getting through the COVID-19 crisis. Essentially, OpenMeal is an online platform that allows donors to buy meals for those in need, catered by restaurants financially impacted by the COVID-19 shelter-in-place. 

Since starting, we've raised over $13,000, served over 1300 meals, and expanded to over 5 cities across the country.

We’re 100% volunteer-based and every dollar donated goes towards a meal for someone in need and local businesses!
