  1. It sounds like you have the skills you need, you're just not being given a shot. Given that you've built B2C mobile and web apps, I wonder if some of it is how you're positioning yourself. The hardest part of building a new product in my mind is getting V1 out the door. Personally, I don't care who your customer was, I care about your process, about how you ask questions, about what questions you ask, and about how successful your product ultimately is.

  2. Totally agree with the point about positioning, but I don't want to misrepresent my experience (nor should I have to IMO). Yeah, I have come to the conclusion that I may have to launch a B2C product on my own at this point just to have that in my portfolio...which is seems like an extreme solution. I've pitched to a range of companies, from fortune 500 to a couple smaller startups. I would think it was me, if the response wasn't so uniform: "we're really looking for someone that's managed a consumer-facing product." It makes me wonder if when describing my process, I'm simply missing something specific to consumer applications.
