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.

StellarPeers is a great platform to utilize for mock practice. I learned about StellarPeers through Blind as a great resource to prep for Facebook. I loved their mission of Preparing for Greatness, Together! Because it helped to encourage me on my journey to receiving my offer at Facebook. I loved how StellarPeers ensures everyone's time is valued with their zero tolerance for no-shows, which helped me complete over 150 mock interviews. People were kind, and they provided valuable feedback in areas I needed to master. I also purchased private coaching sessions with Malena. I loved her frameworks and how she coached me on blending my uniqueness when applying the frameworks and didn’t force me to change. During our private sessions, I loved that she explained the WHY behind her critique of my answers, so it helped me understand the importance of changing. I recommend this platform for anyone practicing for product management interviews, not just for Facebook. You will find a community of leaders from people with 10+ years of experience to just starting out, all hungry to learn.

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!
