The Ultimate Guide to Getting a Job in Product Marketing

By Jeffrey Vocell

“How do I get into product marketing?”

That’s a question I see almost every single week, and it’s no surprise. According to a survey by Robert Half, product marketing is one of the top 3 marketing roles growing in 2018.

And yet, even though there is a lot written about the importance of product marketing, it still remains a mystery to many looking to make the transition into a product marketing role.

3 Reasons Why Your First Job Needs To Be in Sales

By David Shepherd

It's 2008. I've landed my dream job. A couple of successful alumni from my university saw a spark in me and hired me into their firm; very best in the city. Everyone said so. Four months later, I’m out of a job.

The great recession has hit. Markets are in turmoil. Banks are seized up. Lending has come to a stop. And there isn’t any work for me to do in my dream job or industry.

By Riley Stefano

And women of color in the US broke records in the midterm elections. (Shoutout to Massachusetts’ first black woman elected to Congress, Ayanna Pressley, who came to speak at HubSpot during her campaign!)

How Leaving Management Helped Me Grow Better as a Parent

By Nathanael Yellis

Because we’ve seen this same career ladder our entire lives, we automatically default to thinking that advancing in our careers means moving up into these management roles. And when I started my career, that’s exactly what I thought. “Managers run everything! Individual contributors don’t have much sway or influence. Why would I want to get stuck there?”
