The Middlebury Institute of International Studies recently highlighted Adam Youngfield, a College of Humanities graduate and Translation and Localization adjunct at Brigham Young University, as part of a series titled “How I Got My Job.” Youngfield’s success story can motivate and inspire current students trying to achieve their own career goals.

The Middlebury Institute shared Youngfield’s impressive educational background and career trajectory. After graduating from BYU in 2013 with a BA in linguistics and French, Youngfield pursued an MA in Translation and Localization Management at the Middlebury Institute. Later that year, Youngfield became the language team manager for Europe and Asia for MultiLing Corporation, a business that provides translations of intellectual property. A few years later, he became an adjunct professor at BYU and also took on a role as the lead regional translation operations manager for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He now works as the head of globalization enablement.

Youngfield credited his achievements to the relationships he developed in his educational and professional career. He said, “Although grades are important, they can only get you so far if you haven’t invested time in making professional connections. The relationships you build will last well beyond your time at the Institute and will open doors for you and enable you to open doors for others.”
