Upraised review by Tanmay Singh

Tanmay Singh

Product Manager at Monexo

Ended up bagging more than one product offer

A couple of years into my first job, I knew product management was the right fit for me. I was at Byju's and was fascinated by the work PMs in the company were doing.

At the beginning, there was a lot of doubt. My gut kept telling me, I could be a great PM. Years in sales & program management had taught me valuable lessons around communicating effectively, influencing without authority and having a keen eye for data.

But, I was scared!

Ended up really stepping up my game with Upraised & getting more than one offer

You cant go wrong with Upraised

You need someone to be with you for the emotional up & downs of a career change. Someone who sticks with you all the way.

Most courses are transactional, there is no personalised attention but I needed someone who could tell me “You can do it”

My coach, counsellors made the tough transition to product possible
