Jennifer Cho: Interpreting for the State Department

December 13, 2011

Jennifer Cho graduated with a MA in Conference Interpretation from the Monterey Institute last May. After graduating, she landed two prestigious internships. The first was a Translation and Terminology Fellowship with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva, Switzerland.  Jennifer translated patents for WIPO, which is a UN Organization.

Her second internship was with the U.S. Department of State. She worked as a Conference Interpreter in Korean and English.  The highlight of her experience was when South Korean President Lee Myung-bak and his wife came to the White House for a state visit in October.  Jennifer worked as the interpreter for President Lee's daughter and attended the official state dinner.

Both internships have paid off in a big way for Jennifer.  She is now doing freelance work for WIPO and has been hired as an in-house contractor by the Department of State. It takes years for most linguists to get these positions, so it looks like Jennifer is well on her way to being a leader in her field!
