Students and faculty are invited to attend events on campus featuring Ms. Alba Martinez, an executive with Vanguard. Martinez will speak about her experiences and path to success in the corporate world. Please note that Vanguard hires students from ALL majors and has a particularly strong diversity policy.
Alba Martinez is an executive at Vanguard, one of the world’s largest investment management companies. She leads Vanguard’s Education Markets Group which helps families across the U.S. with their college savings goals. Previously, Martinez worked for many years in the nonprofit sector. In this presentation, she will talk about using her skills as a lawyer and her experience in social service organizations to achieve success in the corporate world, and about Vanguard’s commitment to diversity.
Mike Grose, a Vanguard recruiter, and Lila Semrau, a very successful NMSU alumnae and Vanguard crew member, will accompany Ms. Martinez and will be available to meet with any student interested in learning more about employment opportunities at Vanguard.
