A product manager CV should be prepared only after intensive research on the organization the job seeker is interested in. You must show that you understand the organization’s product and you hold similar values to those of the organization.
Experience in the field would be an added advantage. You can also include experience in a related field such as procurement or purchasing. Work and volunteer experience in a totally different field can also be included. If you decide to do this ensure that you demonstrate the skills you developed as a result of other related jobs that you have done and how they are transferable to the field of product management.
