Hi @rahul_borkar
a) Coming from a product management background, you have a good change. Your experience is relevant (I applied as a PM myself)
b) Hard to tell with this info. Why dont you start a list of recos and evidences mapped against the Technation criteria
c) Recommenders preferably from different companies, backgrounds, geographies is a plus
d) You should aim for C-level, VP, Director level
e) As a thumb rule, Dont use evidences if they are older than 5 years
f) Think hard who you’ve worked with in the past and have good relations with
