“I think that Le Wagon is an amazing experience for someone who wishes to become a product manager.”


What were you doing before Le Wagon?


Before joining Le Wagon, I used to work in consulting for Accenture. Although I had a great time there and learnt a lot, I felt I missed working on a product I loved and that the job was not 'techy" enough. I had also been willing to learn coding for a really long time as I was really curious and wanted to be able to build my own things.


What are your tips on applying for product management roles?


Finding your first product management role can be a bit hard since most of the companies look for people with at least one experience in product. It's a kind of "chicken and egg" position. The most important thing is to keep applying and making sure that you attend as many product management meetings and conferences as possible. London has hundreds of Meetups every week and going to them is the best way to learn more about the industry and meet the right people.


If you were to do the bootcamp again and looking to be a Product Manager, what would your tips be to maximize the 9 weeks?


I think that Le Wagon is an amazing experience for someone who wishes to become a product manager because it gives you the opportunity to build a product from scratch during the last two weeks. I would really recommend trying to act as a product manager during this phase by asking yourself why you build a certain feature, trying to prioritise your features using classic product management tools, making the most of the product sprint. I personally built a travel recommendation chatbot and showed it during job interviews. It was extremely useful in order to demonstrate that even if I didn't have any product management experience in a company, I had already built a product and used classic product and design tools.


What was the best part of your bootcamp experience?


I think the best part of doing Le Wagon is to meet a group of people and share an adventure with them. One of the best parts of Le Wagon is that you will be joining a strong alumni community, always willing to help you.

Two months after Le Wagon, I'm now junior Full-Stack Developer at Drivy

"The curriculum is very well crafted, the teachers are passionate and the learning platform makes it easier day after day to grasp new concepts and get closer and closer to autonomy. Above the syllabus, the atmosphere was great, not only with my classmates but also with former alumni on Slack."

Graduate stories

Retail to Le Wagon, the springboard for building my mobile app

Before Le Wagon I was a sales assistant at a retail store, and was doing this for just under 5 years. I’ve always had an interest in technology and knew eventually this is the sector in which I would like to build a career, but didn’t have the relevant experience or qualifications, so I took the plunge and embarked on the Le Wagon bootcamp. I'm now working for Hoxton Digital, a web agency built by alumni, and I'll never look back.

From jQuery to DOM and ES6

Looking back in time, jQuery was created to cope with JavaScript implementation differences between browsers. But time have changed. For the better.
