Dear All, Anyone here at the American Cancer Society? I’ve been using this app for about 2 weeks and cannot find anyone, so I’m throwing the question out there🤞 I have a position that I’d like to be referred to. With 10+ years of project management experience working in healthcare and public health research, I have the skill set to match. I’d love to send over my resume for verification and review. Thank you 🙏 😊

      The Interviewer rescheduled 5 minutes before the beginning of the meeting. She showed up an hour later with wet hair and in a Tshirt. Rude and dismissive. Horrible representation of the company.
