Sophia Huang: Onboarding as a Product Manager
Sophia Huang is a product manager at InVision. She started her career in the San Francisco Bay Area, and eventually moved to New York City to work with InVision, the makers of the popular “InVisionApp” software. In her ProductTank NYC presentation, she goes over the challenges of on-boarding as a product manager.
Sophia explains that it is extremely rare for a company to have a smooth and proper on-boarding procedure. The process at times can be chaotic and you want to work quickly in identifying someone in the organization who can direct all your questions to (especially in the first two weeks of starting your role). In Sophia’s experiences, she has directed all of her questions to one team member or a “buddy”, rather than being able to utilize the proper frameworks and points of contact for onboarding.
