Dr. David Krause, AIM program director, was in Kansas City visiting various financial firms. Today he met with Trica Feuerborn, Human Resources Recruiter at American Century Investments. He said, "It was a pleasure meeting with Trica. We have talked in the past, but it was nice to get to Kansas City and visit American Century. I am impressed with the internship program at the firm and appreciate the rigor of their interview process. I hope to share the resumes of some of our top students - it would be outstanding to have an opportunity for a Marquette AIM student to work for American Century."

Earlier in the day, Dr. Krause met with Charles Holzhecht (MU '02) at G.K. Baum's headquarters in Kansas City. (See previous blog discussion of Charles and G.K Baum). Krause said, "I enjoyed meeting with Charles this morning. G.K. Baum is a very impressive firm that competes in the investment banking and public finance space in the Midwest. It is great to get into the industry and visit our alumni in their home offices. G.K. Baum has an excellent culture that you can sense when you are on site. I know Charles will do well with the firm - he has the perfect balance of intelligence, passion for finance, and personality. I was impressed with the firm and their prospects - it was an excellent visit to Kansas City and I'm hopeful we can bring more Marquette graduates to KC."
