Getting into tech was never part of my plan. I graduated from the university with a degree in medical physiology and started a medical career working as a pharmacy sales rep earning NGN10,000 a month.
Even though I thought I was ready to embark on my medical career journey, something changed. I transitioned into Product Management and have since grown into the role. Making this career move is one of the best things I’ve done for myself. So, for the woman looking to enter the product management space or looking to make a career change, here are my top tips for you:
