The new faculty reflect the diverse campus, arriving from near and far and bringing a range of new experience and knowledge to share with students in different programs.
Translation & Interpretation Students in High Demand
March 21, 2014
Since 2009, MIIS alumna Sally Young (MATI '99) has been coming to the Monterey Institute Career Fair from Geneva to recruit staff, interns and fellows for the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The reason she comes is simple.
"You (MIIS) have the language combinations that we desperately seek," said Young.
She appreciates the quality of MIIS candidates from the Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation and Language Education, in particular their “attention to detail, passion to keep learning, and desire to do in-depth research.” Because of this appreciation and respect, over half of the interns at WIPO come from MIIS and in Young's department, almost half of the staff members are MIIS graduates.
"We feel the course here at Monterey prepares the students exceptionally well for the type of work that we do," said Young.
