This is a podcast episode titled, How to Get Hired by People Who Don't Want to Hire You. The summary for this episode is: Experience and a fancy degree can only get you so far.    If you've listened to Drifts founder and CEO David Cancel on Seeking Wisdom, you've probably caught that he doesn't exactly love hiring product managers with experience and those with their MBAs. They don't give you the right to tell people what to do; all they can do is help you get your foot in the door (he says).   But that's where Maggie breaks the mold. Maggie is a Product Manager at Drift, has her MBA from Harvard Business School -- and oh yeah -- she's a former Olympian. And now she's the newest host on Seeking Wisdom.    And in this first episode of #build, she explains everything she's learned from DC and the Drift team about how to build better and faster.    Follow Maggie on Twitter at @maggiecrowley.
