My name is Matthew Jentis and I am senior at Penn State’s School of Labor and Employment Relations.  I will be graduating with a duel degree, in labor and employment relations and Spanish language, by May 2018.  I am also a member of the Penn State Schreyer’s Honors College and am developing a thesis on comparative human resources between the Dominican Republic and Spain.

I am also a first year student in the Integrated Undergraduate- Graduate Master’s program for human resources and Employment Relations at Penn State.  My goal through the Master’s Program is to combine my passion for international cultures and work on a global stage upon graduation.  I am near fluent in Spanish and hope to use my translation skills to communicate and enforce labor policies with workers from around the world.

I also have many hobbies and interests that I pursue both at Penn State and while I am not at school during the summer.  I have an especially strong interest in travel.  This year during the summer, I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain as well as backpacked to 11 European countries. Additionally, some of my other passions include language, music performance, and community service.  At Penn State, I enjoy participating in the annual 46 hour Penn State Dance Marathon held every February in the fight against childhood cancer as well as spending time with friends. 

I grew up in New Jersey and visit New York on a frequent basis.  Since coming to Penn State, I have found my second home and have been given countless opportunities to pursue my interests and passions.  I am looking forward to completing the Integrated Undergraduate Master’s Program in human resources to expand my knowledge about the field on an international stage.
