Back in 2006 I submitted a post on the ALLPM.com forum site asking for a discussion on good PM interview questions. Twenty-two responses and over 40,000 views later, we had quite a long list of questions that managers and other PMs use when interviewing PM candidates.
In this current economy we have a lot of individuals looking to either reposition themselves within various industries – including as PMs – or PMs looking for new work due to layoffs, etc. I thought this might be a helpful time to re-visit that list and provide what I consider to be some of the key questions that were discussed on that thread over the course of several months.

Also discussed in the forum posts were some key guidelines for preparing for the interview and responding to interview questions….
Above all else – be yourself. Answer confidently and be honest. And more than anything else, I’ve found that making good eye contact lets the interviewer know you are serious, interested and providing a thoughtful and honest response. And as always, please feel free to provide your own thoughts and potential questions. It will certainly be to everyone's benefit. Thanks.
