Vannary Kong works hard. She’s majoring in political science, she’s had several jobs while at IUPUI, and she’s had six—yes, six—internships. The biggest was in New York, working for her dream employer, the United Nations.
To earn the internships, Vannary worked with her career coach in the Office of Career Development to perfect her resume and prepare for interviews. “They were really helpful in giving me the tools to progress in my career,” she says.
Her biggest takeaway from her internships: “Your work ethic matters most.” So don’t expect her to slow down anytime soon. She’s working for the national service program AmeriCorps VISTA in Indianapolis, and she’s applying to rejoin the U.N. in its Young Professionals Programme.See why liberal arts works
