Northern Trust is a sponsor of Arizona’s Career Mixer in Scottsdale on Wednesday, May 27, 4:30-7:30 p.m. at SkySong. Co-sponsored by the University of Arizona Alumni Association, the mixer connects both alumni and students from the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, and Northern Arizona University with more than 55 top employers from across Arizona. 

Northern Trust is a leading provider of asset management, fiduciary, banking, asset servicing, and fund administration solutions for individuals, families, corporations, and institutions worldwide. We interviewed UA alumnus Zijie (Victor) Liu (management information and operations) about his career at Northern Trust and what he misses about the UA.

“My job allows me to maximize what I’ve learned from MIS program,” says Liu, who works in the data governance and management group. 

“Northern Trust has provided me the best platform to further advance my career,” he says. “I really enjoy how people collaborate and work together towards the same goal here.” 

Liu enjoys his work and loves the culture of Northern Trust even more. 

“Northern Trust’s culture focuses on diversity and inclusion, which makes all partners feel comfortable and engaged,” he says. 

Liu also shared that some of his fondest memories of the UA were the ZonaZoo and the collaboration in his studies. 

“I really miss all the great times I had at basketball and football games,” says Liu. 

“I also clearly remember the long hours me and my team members spent together working on projects. These are precious moments and life-time memories for me.” 

Liu also shared some great career advice: “Think big picture and quickly move on from setbacks. Do remember your career is a marathon, not a sprint. As long as you work hard and smart, you will achieve your goal!” 

If you want to work at Northern Trust, attend Arizona’s Career Mixer on May 27 to meet representatives from the company. Northern Trust is planning to grow to 1,000 full-time jobs in Tempe. 

By the end of 2015, Northern Trust will open the doors of their new office in Tempe at the Discovery Business Park, an optimal location because of the flexibility of the space and surrounding infrastructure. For more information on the location and hiring, follow this link: http://careers.northerntrust.com/arizona.php
