DGC Welcomes Newest Hire – All Thanks To Katie Couric!
DGC recently had the exciting and unique opportunity to interview a new candidate. Fresh out of the University of Rhode Island, Maddie Dombi felt like a perfect fit for DGC – entrepreneurial, passionate, scrappy and intelligent – and we quickly knew we had found a quality addition to our team.
But this was no ordinary candidate. Maddie was participating in “Katie’s Classified,” a week-long series on the Katie Couric Show in which Katie and her team of experts were helping three worthy women jump start their careers and hopefully land a job!
After a whirlwind interview process, the stars aligned with Maddie liking DGC as much as we liked her. This meant that our fearless leader – Sam DiGennaro – would have the opportunity to offer her an Account Coordinator position on the Katie Couric show as part of a “Big Reveal.”
The experience made for TV magic, if we do say so ourselves, with Katie diving in deep on Maddie’s interview experience and what she liked about DiGennaro Communications. Then, Sam herself popping up from the audience to offer Maddie the position, while perfectly describing why DGC’s culture was a match for Maddie’s outgoing, lean-in and entrepreneurial personality. Maddie was super-stoked and looked like she might cry. A happy ending for all!
“We’re thrilled for our new team member, our experience on the Katie Couric Show and the new connections we made along the way. The segment which aired Friday, November 15 can be accessed here.
Welcome to DGC, Maddie!
