Malena helped me immeasurably with my interview prep for Meta. I tried working through it on my own at first, and working with Malena was a night and day difference. I thought I knew what I was doing, but she quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses, and then helped me continually refine my strengths and close the gap on my weaknesses. Using the frameworks and approaches Malena helped drill into my mind made the prep and actual interviews so much less stressful and scary. I went into my interviews feeling confident, and landed a great PM role at Meta in a time where VERY few people were getting through the screens; I directly credit Malena's help for getting me through it. Couldn't have done it without you, Malena!

Malena, I just got the update from HR that I passed all the loops and converted successfully. Thank you for all the help, patience and guidance you provided in a short time frame, agreeing to do four sessions in 4 days. Your sessions were so crucial and insightful and helped me add a lot more structure to my thinking and approach, especially around analytical rounds. I needed that more than I thought, and it helped me ground myself a few days before the interview. Thank you again for doing what you do to help others. I'll always be grateful for your time.

I contacted Malena to help me prepare for the various topics covered during the Google Product Manager interview. There were only two weeks left before the interviews. She responded the same day, and we had our first coaching session the day after. Malena identified my key weaknesses, and we worked on them. Being able to answer questions right is one thing, but doing it within the short amount of time allocated is another. She was instrumental in helping me to achieve both. She provided frameworks that helped structure my answers. But what's great is that she was able to adapt them to fit better with my preferences in approaching the questions. This made me much more at ease, allowing me to answer questions in a structured and natural way. I sometimes felt a bit defeated when facing difficult topics. She was here to keep my spirits up when I was doubting. Consequently, I arrived at the interviews with a high level of confidence, and succeeded in getting my dream job as a Google PM.

I reached out to Malena when preparing for my Meta onsite PM interview. I struggled with the structure, lacked depth in my answers, and had poor delivery. Malena's coaching sessions helped me overcome my weaknesses with a step-by-step approach for each focus area. Even after the coaching sessions, she kept in touch and constantly motivated me to keep preparing. When I got the senior product manager offer from Meta, she gave me many great tips to negotiate the compensation and choose the team. Because of her guidance, I was able to get a higher offer and was able to start my journey at Meta. Malena truly cares a lot about her mentees, and I highly recommend her 1x1 sessions for FAANG preparation.

I just wanted to pass a quick note to thank you for fostering this awesome community. I signed up for a purely functional reason of watching videos and practicing mock interviews with others, but I'm walking away with so much more than that. With 90+ mocks completed, I met smart, kind, capable people empowering and helping each other. I was exhausted, doubting myself, but someone from the community gave me kind words and showed empathy each time. I have met great friends that I'd love to keep in touch with. After a grueling 10 weeks, I got an offer from Meta — And the first thing that came to my mind was the awesome StellaPeers community! Thank you for hosting an awesome community and great content!

I am pleased to share that I received an offer from Meta in a product management role. I am so grateful to Malena and her coaching — from editing my resume, providing private coaching to nail the Meta product interviews, and answering my numerous questions outside of her coaching hours; Malena has been my constant source of support! I wouldn't be able to break into Meta without her coaching. I recommend her services to anyone preparing for a product management interview. Thanks, Malena and StellarPeers!

I worked with Malena to prep generally for PM interviews and, more specifically, for Google and Meta. Malena was very structured, allowing me to hone in on the places I needed to improve. I had very little PM interview experience when we started. I was so grateful for her practical, useful, and specific feedback and her deep knowledge of what these companies are looking for. As I interviewed with more companies, I could tell I was getting stronger after each coaching session. Ultimately, I had multiple offers, which wouldn’t have been possible without Malena’s coaching!
