Choosing Her Path
Parker dreamed of getting into Chapman, but she was unsure of what major to choose once she received her acceptance. While at Chapman, she was initially intimidated by the Business Major due to its challenging and versatile nature, but she quickly learned that the hard work was worth it, “Business is something that can be applied in almost every aspect, which is why I think it’s such an important degree,” Parker explains.
Because of her perseverance and dedication, Parker secured an internship with 3D Public Relations & Marketing, a female-owned marketing agency in Los Angeles. This experience allowed her to explore all aspects of the PR and marketing industry, working on anything from crafting press releases to curating social media content. Parker discovered her passion for combining creativity with logical business strategies from this. Currently, she is pursuing another internship with a marketing and public relations agency in Newport Beach.
Parker acknowledges the Argyros School’s significant role in honing her job search skills, resume-building techniques, and networking abilities. She thanks her advisors and professors for guiding her toward securing internship opportunities.
