Your Career Considerations
“While making my double pivot in industry and job function, the Parker Career Management Center not only made me feel comfortable that it was possible, but also set realistic expectations that this would require extra effort. Parker has been a partner throughout my journey by helping me scope out opportunities, scout people I could connect with, revise my resume and prep for interviews, and consider offers, as well as by acting as a sounding board when I went through my numerous decision trees!”

International Student Emails
UCLA Anderson’s Parker Career Management Center “Parker” often partners with identity clubs to organize company visits in international locations, depending on interests and needs of each class. In recent years, we conducted international treks to visit companies across tech, entertainment, banking, CPG, and other industries and in locations like China (an investment banking DOJ) and Miami (for global companies that comprised a Latin American market DOJ).

We at Parker CMC are excited to meet you. Before you come to Anderson, you should focus on setting up your career goals, evaluating your competitive advantages, gaining more knowledge of your industry of interest and building/strengthening relationships you have with coworkers, management, clients and customers.
