Jennifer Tran ’18 G’19
My name is Jennifer Tran and I graduated from SUNY Poly with my Bachelor’s in 2018 and my MBA in 2019! Since then, I worked as a CSR for a company called Alorica for almost a year. Then, I had to move to Missouri to be close to my mom’s side of the family, for they longed to have my mom and I live with them. I’ve been living in Missouri for 5 months now, and was able to find a job right in my field of study, which was HR. I have been working as an HR Specialist for Ariel Premium Supply! I have the professors and advisors from SUNY Poly to thank for helping me grow into the career that I wanted! Much thanks to Lisa Berardino, Melissa Prest, Katie Matt, and Robert Edgell, for making it possible! Their love and passion for their jobs and knowledge they taught me helped me find the job that I love too.
