“Nancy presented at the Duke North Texas Women’s Forum and she was a fabulous speaker — fascinating and engaging.

Don't Wait Until Graduation - Your Life Starts NowNancy knows firsthand what companies seek in early-career talent, as well as C-level/Boardroom roles.  During her time in executive search, she built a specialty practice focused on NextGen CEOs — high-pedigree up-and-comers for strategic bench strength and succession planning assignments.

She also draws on campus experience, as co-founder of a program at TCU’s Neeley School of Business to optimize the MBA job search – increasing both placement rates and starting salaries for three consecutive years.  She has been among an elite group of recruiters who determine annual rankings for The Wall Street Journal/Harris Interactive survey on top Business Schools.

Program summary

When you are a student, your job is to find out what ignites you.  Now is the time to explore and experiment.  What intrigues?  What are you good at? Then…you’ll be ready to offer your own brand of excellence to the world.

The Perfect Fit can help you make the most of coursework and opportunities now.  What organizations and activities deliver the most enjoyment and learning?  What about jobs and internships?  What about networking and personal relationships?

The key is to Flash Forward, then Fill in the Blanks.   Take a peek ahead at something that appeals to you.  Then see what it will take to achieve.

The goal is to have the freedom to choose — having multiple options when it’s time to decide.  YOU get to be the decider.  Waiting until graduation year may limit your possibilities.  Why not start now???

“Nancy brings real world experience, compelling anecdotes and clever techniques into the classroom.

“For students, she provides an invaluable perspective from the other side of the desk – the recruiters, gatekeepers and hiring managers who have a direct impact on individual career success.  She knows the trends and the marketplace.  She helps students stand out in a cluttered field.”

Shirley Rasberry, Former Director
Graduate Career Services,  TCU Neeley School of Business
