My name is Fahad Ali Syed and I am doing Masters in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the National University of Sciences and Technology(NUST), Islamabad. I have completed the course work and currently, I am in the process of doing my thesis work which I expect to complete in May 2021. I did Bachelor in Business Administration from NUST Business School(2015-2019)
As an active member of the NUST community, I have become adept at management skills that are imperative to succeed in a dynamic work environment. As an executive member of the NUST Debating Society and NUST Community Services Club, I got the chance to become a part of various events and also organize them as event head which honed my management skills and enhance my ability to work under pressure and improve time management as well. Working in the marketing sponsors team for NUST Olympiad and International Conference on Business Management, I contacted different companies and successfully negotiated and received sponsors for the events. Interacting with different companies has helped me enhance my communication and presentation skills.
With time, I climbed my way up to remain in several leadership positions. As President of NUST Debating Society, NEED Initiative NUST, and Vice-President NUST Excursion Club, I spearheaded different teams and ensured that all the departments in these organizations worked in harmony and synergized environment. I mentored and encouraged dozens of students working in these organizations. Interacting with students with different backgrounds has helped me develop interpersonal skills. As their mentor, I effectively communicated my experience and unbiased perspective related to these organizations to the students.
I also got the opportunity to work in Schlumberger, a leading oilfield services company working in 120 countries. I have experience working in their Procurement and Sourcing department where I assisted in their procurement process. I also updated the Schlumberger facilities details for Pakistan (Location, lesser & lessee Information, contact details). I assisted in processing the PSO Fuel Card (Fleet & corporate) request for the employees and data entry. I also assisted in comparing and analyzing quotations received from the suppliers.
My work experience also includes working for the Center for Global & Strategic Studies, a think tank based in Islamabad. As an administrative assistant, I managed day-to-day managerial activities for the organization. I used my event management skills learned from the university to organize professional events for the organization. I also performed HR functions for the organization. I updated employees' records in their database and assisted in hiring employees for the IT department.
