hot off the press
McKula Inc was again a proud participant in the Mt. Pleasant Rotary’s Vocation Day program this year. The Vocational Day program matches students up in areas of interest with professionals in the area. This look into the challenges and rewards of a particular career is often times invaluable in the decisions those students will be making over the next few years. After the event, the students and professionals they shadowed are welcomed back to luncheon where each student has an opportunity to share their experiences for the day. As a host, McKula Inc. provides a valuable experience to a student interested in the world of application and software programming, they get to see various stages of the development process in a live environment. They gain insight into the cutting edge programming and software development techniques in practice today, which helps better prepare them for the next stages of their educational and professional development.
