Life at Perficient

From Career Fair to Internship to Full Time, Perficient Was a No-Brainer

I graduated from Carl H. Lindner College of Business, University of Cincinnati, in August 2016, with a master’s degree in business analytics. The Perficient team that came to the campus fair in February 2016 was amazing.
I had the opportunity to network with Aaron Price, a Senior Solutions Architect in our Perficient Digital Adobe practice, and unlike representatives of many other companies, Aaron was quite friendly and fluid and immediately made me comfortable with his jovial nature. The best thing about our 5-minute interaction was that even though Aaron was primarily looking for web developers, he considered me for an analytics opportunity I was looking for at Perficient and forwarded my CV to the right person in the organization as promised.

Getting My Foot in the Door

I was among the top two candidates selected by Perficient for summer internship. The internship was a perfect opportunity to get know the culture of the company, the challenges at work, and the quality of management. I found that Perficient aced in all of these with a family like flexible culture and managers genuinely trying to encourage their subordinates to become better professionals by helping them in technical and consulting challenges. There was a lot of positivity all around.

Accepting the Offer

When Perficient offered me a full-time employment after the conclusion of my internship, it was a no-brainer for me. I am now a business consultant for Adobe Analytics at Perficient Digital. My role is to design and implement digital analytics strategies for our clients and provide recommendations on reaching key business goals in the most effective manner.
As a business consultant, I have worked with various clients to understand their end business goals and then design and implement their digital analytics strategy using Adobe Analytics. Hence my work may be described as a combination of solution designing, technical implementation, recommendation and guidance and post-delivery support.

My Time to Shine

I believe I have definitely created a positive impact in the minds of my clients and the team members that I have worked with at Perficient. The impact has come in the form of high-quality analytics solutions and extended support that I have delivered to my clients exceeding their expectations.
On my second project, I single handedly managed all the client requirements and delivered an excellent solution ahead of the deadline. There were many challenges, but I was able to conquer them one after another, resulting in a high-quality deliverable. This not only brought more work from them but also forged a long-lasting relationship.
