Short Intro. Hi my name is Mohammed Islam and I am a very enthusiastic person.

Where Have I Been?  I graduated from Brooklyn College 2012-2016, in Bachelors of Science. I double majored in Business Management and Finance/Marketing.

I am currently working on multiple projects at two different firms. I am a Business Development Manager/Senior Director of Marketing at Epsilon Solutions, a Manhattan engineering firm. Over the past year, I have managed to build an intensive list of clientele through market analysis as well as learning to communicate with the clients in various ways. I have been involved in projects worth up to $2 million, from price negotiations to day to day operations, in which I execute cost analysis. My second project involves working with the CEO of Data Tech as a Director of Finance and Marketing Operations where I am assisting in the release of a new upcoming mobile application. I am negotiating with venture capitalists and developing a marketing plan for the application. I have a profound talent at organization and achieving targets. My experiences helped me understand the importance of teamwork, time management and strong communications skills to ensure success of tasks at hand.

Where Am I Now? Current job (title, company, skills relevant to career in digital marketing); COOP (why did you join, what do you want to gain from the experience?); More... (Volunteering, leadership within community) 

Where Am I Going? Near future plans beyond starting a career in digital marketing (think about the skills you want to develop); 10 years from now (where do you see yourself, what are dreams/goals)

2 Companies I really admire and Why

        

Why do you like this company? What makes them special? Is there a leader at this organization you really admire?

       Twitch is an online live streaming platform where broadcasters can release and perform their content in real-time with viewer interaction live. I first found out of Twitch several years ago when I wanted to find a hobby that doesn't involve being the viewer but a content creator. Now as a live broadcaster, I consider Twitch as my second hobby, influencing many individuals around the world with my creative content and entertainment.

Let me tell you about ...

Setting the stage. 3 years ago when I was working in staples I met a gentle who needed 35 nexus 7 tablets and this was a few days after its release, as one of the hottest tech product in the market for its cheap price.

The beginning. I told the gentlemen it was impossible to find 35 tablets and currently my store only had five. I told the gentlemen if he can give us a week we would have a chance of gathering 35 tablets.

The middle. However the gentlemen explained his situation in which he has a flight later that day for which he has to have the tablets and that he's personally going to donate it to children around the world in places they can’t afford technology and also is setting up schools through his charity.

The End. With that as my motivation I personally contacted every single staples in NYC and gathered 35 tablets and we he eventually left on the plane.

Reflection. After a few months, this gentleman won an award in the United Nations for his application and he later thanked me for my effort of accomplishing the impossible. I had a satisfying feeling knowing i not only made the sale but i helped kids receive tablets which they wouldn't have gotten had it not for me
