Monterey Institute students visiting the annual Student Club Fair found groups formed around common interests ranging from fine dining and outdoor recreation to language learning and international trade.
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.

Pablo Chang-Castillo (MAT ‘01/MACI ’02) met his partner Julian Brasseur (MATI ’02) in Paris on a Monterey Institute exchange program. They both graduated from MIIS and have taken their moveable feast around the world enjoying amazing careers as interpreters.
