Micheal G., associate technical consultant at Perficient

“Everyone was very informative in what Perficient expects and how to improve ourselves as employees. Programs like this help, mainly because most new employees are nervous, and it helps to break the ice and make them feel more comfortable.” Michael G., associate technical consultant

“I enjoyed being surrounded (virtually of course) by people who are in the same shoes. It makes the whole thing a little less overwhelming.” JeanPaul A., associate technical consultant

Launch Your Career with a Built-in Support System

“I think it’s important to show up for your new employees by setting up the support system from the start. On the first day, I was overwhelmed by all the resources and support from everyone we talked to. Everyone always encouraged us to reach out and ask questions which demonstrated what makes Perficient’s company culture so great.” Gabby T., associate business consultant

Enjoy Community with Other Campus Program Attendees

“My favorite part of the Campus Programs is that we were constantly connecting with our peers. It was comforting to know that we’re all starting out on the same page even though we’re all coming from different backgrounds, cities, levels of education, and skillsets. All of us coming together and interacting was fun because I didn’t feel misguided or alone.” Gabby T., associate business consultant

Experience the Joy of Collaborative Colleagues That Wants You to Succeed

“I’ve learned that it’s not realistic to think you’ll know everything about everything in your career. Adaptability is key.” JeanPaul A., associate technical consultant

Contribute to Perficient’s Knowledge-Sharing Culture

When you move at the pace Perficient does, it becomes quickly apparent you cannot do it all. The more collaborative you are, the more resources you have when you need them.

“I learned the importance of continuing to pass the knowledge I’ve gained through the Campus Program to other employees to also help them develop their careers and better the company as a whole.” Gabby T., associate business consultant

Perficient provides a space to be helped, and also help others. We believe that mentoring up is just as important as mentoring down.
