    I thoroughly enjoyed the Land a Job at a Startup Dabble class. Jess has a great energy and was full of actionable information. Having an MBA and experience working for large corporations, I needed to gain a better understanding of how to approach a startup as it is even more informal than I had imagined. I highly recommend this class to anyone interested in working at a startup or starting their own company because Jess provided information and resources that are relevant for those who want to start their own company as well.

    Jess did a great job providing a broad overview of the process of finding work (and actually working) at a startup. While I was familiar with most of the material she presented as I've been researching this field for a while now, she consolidated most of my findings into a quick, two-hour session and included a helpful handout. I'd recommend this class if you are starting to think about working in a startup environment as it will save you a lot of time spent conducting research on your own!

    The class was very fun and insightful. It definitely helped me clarify some personal doubts that I had about how I should approach startup companies and their CEO's. I feel much more comfortable and confident moving forward. I highly recommend this class to anyone is not very familiar with the startup culture but considering a career change.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but this was a well thought out and totally worthwhile class. I feel like I genuinely walked away with really good advice about how to approach a start-up differently from a corporate company. Not only that, but the class really made me feel empowered about the steps I can take to help my chances. I started working on my own personal website that night!

    Great class, exactly what I was looking for: not a promise of how to land a job, but an overview of all the ways startups are different (culturally, organizationally, financially) from established companies, and solid info about why I need to rebrand myself with those differences in mind.

    Jessica provided great insight into the hiring process in the start-up community. She explained the information in a way that was easy to follow and provided concrete steps to put into action. This class is a must for anyone considering working for a start-up or small business. Oftentimes when we are taught how to job search, the process is mainly focused on working in corporate environments. The process for start-ups is MUCH different and it was great to hear about the process straight from the source!

    Very fun, fast paced course. It touched on things that wouldn't have otherwise occurred to me as important to many businesses because they are not welcomed in most of the corporate world. For example being able to work autonomously, being willing to jump in even if it's not in your area of expertise and being passionate about the company and their mission. Definitely learned quite a bit! Jess' background and story are inspirational and her experience is completely relevant to the class.

    Going into it, I had no idea what to expect from this class... and it blew away all of my expectations! Not only did I walk out with a better understanding of the startup community, but I left with a new-found confidence as well. A corporate job is scary (for many reasons!) but making the leap to greener pastures can be downright terrifying. Jess provided us with great tips, tricks and tools to get going. I would highly recommend this class for anyone needing a push in the RIGHT direction :)

    To be honest I came to the class a little skeptical. I've been out networking and playing the hiring dating game and thought I knew all the tricks. To my surprise I had a lot to learn! Based on this class I'm redesigning my résumé and cutting the content, creating an about.me profile, re-strategizing my company targets, rewriting my cover letter/email, ordering some books and ditching my suits. Such refreshing and helpful info.

    With such an enthusiastic and engaging presenter (Dabble's co-founder, Jes) and so many vibrant minds in attendance, there was fantastic energy! < I don't mean that in the "I use crystals to heal my illness ... ouch, I have something in my third eye" kind of way. The course was entertaining, fast-moving, and highly informative. We had questions and Jes answered each and every one of them thoughtfully. Plus there was alcohol, so it's exactly what I thought college would be like, only much less expensive and way more fun.
