Stand out in growth/product with your CV
Stop describing your role. I know what a PM does.
Stop describing your role in your CV in product/growth. I expect you to know how to manage a backlog. I expect you to know how to do research.
This is what I look for when looking at CVs from product/design/growth roles:
What you should tell me is in ascending order of preference:
How many people did I affect with my work?
This tells me whether someone else gave you already the trust for a sizeable responsibility. Even just mentioning how many interviews you did is better than saying "I did user interviews."
Quantify your experience.
Can be internal or external.
Impact on Distribution:
What was the impact on the people I affected with my work?
This is not always possible and you should be careful to not disclose confidential numbers. (When in doubt ask)
But your work always had a specific impact which lets me infer whether you know about a specific topic. For instance, just mentioning that you "helped 3 sales teams with their leads by surfacing data" lets me infer a ton of things:
She knows how to handle quantitative data
She worked with salespeople, knowing what they want/need
She worked with multiple salespeople, probably good with multi-team stakeholder management
The product she worked on must have been in B2B (due to sales present)
In general, cut the fluff, focus on your impact and be honest. Describe what a PM does that goes beyond their basics.
I appreciate an honest assessment any day over a generic description of what a product manager does. I know what they do. What I wonder is whether you are a good fit for MY role.
