About Keith on Careers

Keith Cowing

      

Why Keith on Careers: I have been on both sides of the table. As a hiring manager, I have reviewed 5K+ resumes, interviewed 500+ job candidates, served on hiring committees, and negotiated offers. As a candidate, I have run successful job searches and earned offers from top tier companies. Managing your career is not intuitive and it has a huge impact on your life, so I decided to share what I have learned.

Me in a nutshell: I am a VP of Product at Flatiron Health (acquired by Roche). I also speak at various events about careers and product management. Before Flatiron, I was the Founder and CEO of Seamless Receipts (acquired by Sailthru) and a product manager at Twitter, LinkedIn, and Goldman Sachs. I grew up in a small town in New Hampshire and went to engineering school and business school at Cornell.

When I’m not in the office: You will find me hanging with my wife, my kids, and my 75 pound dog. They’re my partners in crime. You may also find me squeezing in a workout, blogging from my treadmill desk, practicing my barbecue skills, or cheering for the Red Sox and the Patriots.

If you want to contact me, you can e-mail me (keith @ keithoncareers.com), ask me a question on Quora, or find me on Twitter or LinkedIn.

Improve your resume, boost your interview skills, and make your next career move.
