From Nicole Grey-Henry:
The significance of a company like, Perception is Everything, in our community is vital. Many of us attend college and then enter into the real world to obtain employment but without the proper tools. PIE was there for me to assist in preparing my professional resume to seek employment in my field of study. PIE also assisted me in preparing for my interviews by informing me of proper business attire and communication skills.
