Holley Nguyen

Holley joined the Employer Engagement and Career Design team as a co-op student in July 2022. Her position is assisting both Global and Domestic Partnership Liaisons. Holley says: “I have always been interested in traveling around the world, exploring new places, and learning about different cultures. This natural curiosity of mine has led me from Vietnam to Northeastern and to major in International Affairs. Being abroad has opened up a new world of global education and experience. In this position, I hope to bring my international perspective to the team and encourage more students to go global!”
