HARTWICK ALUMNI LAND SUCCESSFUL CAREERS

Lydia Marteney ’21 was hired as an accounting associate after a successful senior year internship at Farm Credit East, ACA. A triple-major with accounting, business administration and anthropology, she graduated Summa Cum Laude with College Honors and IRS certifications in Basic, Advanced and Military preparation, thanks to her work with VITA.

“At least once a week I come across a return with something I learned in VITA. When I show it to a partner at my firm, they’re surprised I know how to do that.”
