Jih studied English at the University of California Riverside and, after graduating, felt jobs within his field of study were limited. He found a job at Panda as Assistant Manager in Operations and, despite not having any experience, he applied. Jih got the job, and through Panda’s training, mentorship, and development programs, he now serves as Multi-Unit Manager.
