Robin Li, Baidu

More than 700,000 computer science-related engineering students graduate each year in China, but few from this labor pool have the experience necessary to help an innovative company grow, says Robin Li, CEO of search engine Baidu. And, he points out, the management opportunities on a global scale are tremendous. That said, he and his company also outline the qualities that they seek in incoming talent – including a readiness to learn, a political and hassle-free outlook, and supreme reliability.
