Oh yeah—for sure. In fact, we’re pretty sure we just saw some famous Web Product Manager being interviewed by Conan last night. He was hilarious. Conan was funny, too.

Sorry, no fame for you. No matter how excellent the work you do, you are behind the scenes…and on the vast Internet, even most of those people in the scenes go unacknowledged. You might be applauded by your clients and/or coworkers, but that will be the extent of your recognition.

Your best bet is to get hired to the next Facebook to manage their corporate communications website. Good luck stumbling upon that one.
