“After five years of engineering in the manufacturing industry, I came to Anderson to transition into strategy and operations in the hi-tech industry. The combination of Parker Career Center, Technology Business Association (AnderTech), and Strategy & Operations Management Association (SOMA) helped me land a product management internship at Amazon—and eventually my full-time return offer. Recruiting skills from Parker, mentorship from AnderTech, and leading SOMA as president has prepared me to find a job and perform on the job as a leader in the tech industry.”
