The Holidays are a great time for informational interviews. Here is the challenging part: you have to ask for them.

PS 1Over fall break, TCU students participated in a corporate site visit to Kansas City. This fortunate handful of students had the privilege of visiting Perceptive Software where they not only toured the amazing headquarters, but also heard from two of the founders and a panel of professionals in the consulting practice.

Students enjoyed getting from the second floor to the first floor on the twirly slide.  The only downside of our visit to Perceptive Software was not having time to let off some steam playing a game of dodge ball on their regulation dodge ball court!
