Meet the Staff

The Bren School is a professional school that prepares students for career success. Complementing the rigorous academic training provided here, the Bren School Career Development team works with students from the first day of orientation to build the specific professional skills they need to thrive in a competitive and changing marketplace. Dave Parker and his team ensure that students are prepared not only to find and land the jobs they want upon graduating, but also to remain versatile and mobile throughout their careers. Thanks to the team's unwavering commitment to personal, one-on-one service and its record of placing Bren graduates in excellent jobs in their chosen field, the program consistently receives high ratings from students and alumni, who view it as one of the school's greatest strengths.

"One reason I was interested in attending Bren in the first place was the apparent strength of the Career Services department. It was extremely important to me that I would be able to land a fulfilling job upon completing the MESM program. I was not disappointed! The staff supported my job-search efforts from day one, and it paid off!" — Dakota Corey, MESM Graduate
