Ivanka Trump works for dad now
Ivanka, 24, has a business degree from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where her father also got his business education. Ivanka and her brother, Donald Jr., now work for Donald Trump.
First job was outside the family firm
Ivanka’s first post-college job was not at her father’s company.
Quote: “”I took a job with another real-estate developer in New York,” she said, “because at the end of the day, I did want the experience of working at some other company as a benchmark.”"
Quote: “”Modeling was never an end game for me,” she said. “It was fun for those years when I was trapped in Connecticut. As young as I can remember I always wanted to get into real estate. I always sort of had a plan.”"
Born with the silver spoon
Quote: “”I long ago learned not to be sensitive to the comments of others,” she said. “People will always say any success I had would be attributed to my father. I understand that. But it’s made me work that much harder.”"
Ivanka about her father
Quote: “”You can see his paternal side on the show,” said Ivanka. “It comes through. He’s not this huggable type guy, but he’s very loving.”"
