Clinton Lo-Lau’s Journey from UConn to TikTok

Clinton Lo-Lau ’10 (CLAS) recently started a new role as a Human Resources Project Management Officer at TikTok, one of the world’s most popular social media platforms. Before that, he worked abroad for PepsiCo. in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and Geneva, Switzerland. Lo-Lau explains how his CLAS degree gave him the foundation for his career. He also describes how his experiences at UConn as a first-generation college student shaped him into the person he is today.

“I got really practical my senior year. I observed that a large percentage of college students were graduating with a psychology degree, and that if I wanted a job in a corporate setting where I could apply my degree, I would have to differentiate myself from my peers. After researching graduate programs and placement statistics, I decided on a master’s in industrial/organizational psychology in an attempt to further stand out.”
