A gratifying experience
When he graduated, Jay landed a coveted role at LinkedIn, which brought him back to his childhood hometown in the Bay Area.
“At LinkedIn, I’ve tried to put on an entrepreneurial hat,” Jay says. “I try to connect people and even start projects inside the company.”
Jay has found this kind of intrapreneurship gratifying.
“Being able to build something of your own with your own blood, sweat and tears and seeing it actually be successful — it’s quite a rewarding experience,” he says.
As part of LinkedIn’s Business Leadership program, Jay will spend several months rotating through different areas in the company. Currently he is recruiting for data scientists, sharing his passion for the company with prospective employees.
“My experiences through my UBC Sauder degree gave me the confidence to excel in this role.”
