As a product manager, I’ve felt that the role is one of the most difficult to hire for because the role is so multi-disciplinary and involves having a hand in engineering, design, marketing, operations while also seeing the bigger vision for a product.
Research has show that work samples, like take-home assignments, are one of the best predictors of success on the job, outperforming years of experience and regular interviews. Building a good take-home requires time and effort and that’s why many hiring managers don’t do them.
At Headlight, we want to put work samples at the center of the hiring process and are offering these assignments for free to the community. We have nicely formatted PDF versions of all the assignments and of course, you’ll find all these assignments and more inside of the Headlight platform.
Let us know what you think!
