UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON MBA SEMINAR ORGANIZER
"Dana Manciagli’s ‘Cut the Crap, Get a Job!’ was a concise, easy to follow seminar, which eliminated extra items that can often lead to procrastination. Her ‘Cut the Crap Job Description Profile (JD Profile) was an invaluable tool to translate a candidate’s resume to a specific job. It was wonderful to hear job search and networking advice from a Fortune 500 executive who has reviewed thousands of candidates with diverse and global backgrounds. Dana’s no nonsense approach with a great sense of humor made her very approachable and left the attendees feeling like they could connect with Dana outside of the seminar. And many have! I highly recommend participating in Dana Manciagli’s ‘Cut the Crap, Get a Job’ so you, too, can compete for a new job and win.”
