Irena Medlin's Product Management Portfolio Project
During the Product Management Program at CareerFoundry, you’ll build out a job-ready project for your portfolio. Here is Irena’s project about suggested improvements for a video conferencing tool called Sync.
Introducing her project and talking about her experience studying with CareerFoundry, here’s what Irena had to share:
What inspired you to make a career change into this field?
Innovation in technology impacts every industry and I could already see the opportunities it could bring to the hospitality sector, where I work as a founder at Falling Lakes Hostel. I love working on solutions that bring the most customer satisfaction, while also aligning with business strategy, which is why I’m always eager to learn new skills. Adding product management skills to my portfolio seemed like a great next step!

I enjoyed connecting with the wider product management community at CareerFoundry: my tutor and mentor, fellow students, and alumni.
What did you enjoy about creating your CareerFoundry portfolio project?
I enjoyed bringing it all together to showcase the entire product management process—everything from problem discovery to launch.
With regards to your new career and skills, what are your hopes for the future?
I’d like to put my newfound skills to use to work on innovative products in the hospitality industry to make the guests and customers’ experience even better!
