Days on the Job


In partnership with the Parker Career Management Center, student clubs organize on-site visits known as Days-on-the-Job (DOJs) with companies and recruiters in the U.S. and abroad. In mid-December 2019, the Greater China Business Association (GCBA) organized a Greater China DOJ. Fourteen students met with, Kuaishou, Lenovo and Plug & Play in Beijing; Ctrip, Google China and Johnson & Johnson in Shanghai; and Tencent in Shenzhen. In addition, students met with UCLA Anderson alumni at mixers in all three cities.

While travel restrictions inhibited in-person visits during the 2020-21 academic year, the Parker CMC remained in close contact with many employers and alumni to enhance ongoing relationships, as well as forge new connections with local startups and global conglomerates. The Parker CMC, in conjunction with the international identity clubs, will continue to build and strengthen corporate recruiting partnerships internationally as well as domestically during the 2021-22 academic year.
