After living half way around the world – literally – Nam Vu returned home to Hanoi, Vietnam.
Nam, now a business analyst at SeABank, one the first commercial joint stock banks in Vietnam, credits the Heider College of Business faculty, the Career Portfolio Program and Career Center and his experience with the Alpha Kappa Psi professional business fraternity with opening the door to this opportunity. In particular, he recognizes the importance of building a solid resume, a skill he honed during the Career Portfolio Program. “I realized the urgent need to have a good resume that can present well my experience, involvement and qualifications in just one page,” says Nam.
The Vietnam native, came to Creighton by way of Boise, ID, where he was an international high school student during his senior year. His counselor suggested he look into Creighton for college. Like any good student, he researched his potential college; his choice to become a Jay was cemented when he toured campus: “My decision was pretty much locked after the visit.”
“The diversity of the university appealed me to me most,” he recalls. Nam served as vice-president of finance for the International Student Association and was also Creighton’s Delta Pi Chapter secretary of the professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi.
Creighton students are encouraged to enroll in travel courses and participate in study abroad programs to broaden their perspective. It’s almost a necessity in an increasingly globalized world. Nam took advantage of these opportunities while at Creighton and he has reaped the rewards of his hard work by earning his dream job back in his home country.
