After graduation, what happens next?  Working in a Fortune 500 company gives you a totally different experience from working in a small company.  The speaker will give a peek view into corporate America on working on tasks, managing projects, interacting with teams and hiring new members.


Mu Qiao graduated from Purdue University with Ph.D. in 2008.  He worked in Xerox Corporation first as an intern and then full time until 2010.  He submitted 6 patent applications with Xerox.  Most of them are not directly related to his work.  He moved to California in summer 2010 and joined Shutterfly.  He manages a team of engineers to build and support robust and efficient image processing and rendering services that Shutterfly customers use everyday.  He won the “High Five” award in 2011, the highest recognition in Shutterfly for his work on auto photo enhancement service.  (
