Thanks for looking at my eportfolio!
I was born in Queens, New York; my family moved around and settled in the Philadelphia, PA area. When I came to Temple University, I actually was a chemistry major. After realizing how boring lab was, I switched to the Fox School of Business. My professor in the prerequisite MIS class, who still is a huge influence, convinced me to switch into MIS and here I am.
I just graduated from undergrad this past January and have been accepted to an MS in Digital Innovation in Marketing at Temple University. I just started this fall. The course is fully online so I am still looking and am available for full time positions!
Why hire me
I truly believe that a company’s culture must correlate with my beliefs and ideas for me to excel. Its culture will cause a chain reaction of me staying with the company and creating an open and diverse environment. When it comes to skills, I think that one should excel in soft skills. In a world where social media and technology has taken over, the art of talking has been lost. I like to believe my soft skills are better than the average person. Working at Starbucks has helped my anxiety to talking with people, which has helped me in school and my future. As someone who is pursuing a job like a project manager or business analyst, those soft skills are the most important, because I need to connect to the client and employees in order to get the most useful information.
Strengths and Weaknesses
- I am humble. My parents are from Bangladesh, and both have been and are still working hard in order to pay bills to this day. I learned from their experiences and my own to stay humble. I do not like the limelight; I’d rather appreciate someone saying good job and moving on rather than having a celebration for my accomplishment.
- I am curious. I’m not afraid to ask questions. Also, since I ask questions, I have to listen carefully so I could ask more questions.
- I’m sympathetic. One of the few things I’ve learned is to understand how people feel. I like to be in their shoes and see how I would react versus how they would and see how each situation compared to one another.
- I can be shy. Because of my stature people have always been afraid when I approach them. Since then I have been hesitant to approach people or talk to them. It can take a while sometimes but once the ball starts rolling, I become very social.
- My technical skills are not on par anymore. I left my internship back in August of 2018. I graduated from undergrad this past January. The gap between those two and quarantine has admittedly caused my technical skills to diminish. I have kept up on my Tableau skills but the others will take some time to learn back but I am confident it will not take long.
