Joey Aquino gives helpful lessons from the world of startups

 

Shidler and engineering students gathered at the Pacific Asian Center for Entrepreneurship (PACE) to learn helpful career tips from Shidler alumnus Joey Aquino.

Aquino, who is currently the startup business development manager at Amazon Web Services, shared with students the lessons his learned after graduating and his journey through several startups including Teachstreet.com and UP Global. Aquino also gave students a reality check of the real world of startups, urging students to continue learning and preparing for the career they want by understanding the company’s culture, skill requirements and long-term vision.

The PACE event was organized by Shidler business undergraduate students Kirk Wei and Shiraz Dole.
