The next time you log on to LinkedIn, think of Sheng Wu G’10, who earned his MBA at Saint Rose. Behind the scenes, he and his team are busy constructing the human-resources IT systems that LinkedIn’s recruiters use to find the best talent for their international workforce.
“I’m helping to build and implement innovative solutions in tools that provide the best experience for our candidates and recruiters,” says Wu, who started in April 2018 as a systems analyst in LinkedIn’s Talent Services.
Saint Rose prepared him well for the demands of his future employers. “The courses at Saint Rose were relevant to real-world lessons, whereas my previous degrees were theory-based,” says Wu. “The experience with real-world situations – especially in HR, where you have to deal with different laws and regulations – was valuable.”
