“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!”
