After graduating, Greg Jabaut quickly found a job as a Spanish teacher at Brown School in Schenectady, NY.
He says his experience as a teaching assistant and the knowledge and expertise attained in graduate courses helped him a great deal as he began his career as an educator. "The time I spent as a graduate student in the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures has proven to be extremely advantageous both professionally and personally."
Currently, Mr. Jabaut is Associate Director of International Programs at Siena College. He advises students on study abroad offerings in more than 50 countries on six continents, develops new study abroad sites and partnerships and helps to facilitate new international exchange programs.
My time as a student in LLC was truly invaluable; the linguistic, intercultural, writing and speaking skills I cultivated at UAlbany have served me incredibly well in my career. Students who study other languages and cultures, in an environment as collegial and collaborative as LLC, are at a distinct advantage after graduation. They have the interpersonal/intercultural skills that translate into success in almost any field in any corner of the globe!”
