Class of 2018

“Parker has a really well structured program for students recruiting for consulting, you just need to "trust the process." I definitely took advantage of the 1-on-1 sessions to test my answers to behavioral interview questions and to make sure my resume and cover letters were in great shape.”

“ I did a bunch of mock interviews with Parker to prepare, which can be terrifying but extremely helpful in your job search. It becomes very apparent very quickly what you are good at and what you still need to work on.”
