A fresh EEE graduate who made the change

It was December 2014 when Naqib Faiyaz, a graduate from BUET EEE Department (belonging to HSC Batch 2008), joined Grameenphone as a System Engineer in the Service Operations Center (SOC). Just 6 months before he completed his undergraduate education life in BUET. As a fresh graduate and getting placed in SOC (where 24/7 monitoring and fault handling of entire network is performed), natural expectation from him was just to learn the tasks and then perform those in best possible manner.

Just after 2.5 years, it is found that Naqib has made revolutionary changes in his department.  He has automated and developed at least nine systems and applications in Grameenphone network, which have brought immense benefits in day-to-day network operations.  His effort and achievements have been recognized throughout the organization. Just within a year of joining, he was selected as a ‘Top Talent’ in annual performance evaluation, becoming the first ever top talent in Grameenphone with just one year tenure. After one more year, he got promoted to the position of Senior System Engineer.  He is still to complete three years in Grameenphone. But already he has won 5 reputable awards in different level (among those the first one came just after 10 months of his joining).This is simply a remarkable achievement in this history of Grameenphone.

Mr. Upal Barua, Head of Service Operations Center in Grameenphone, commented “Naqib is a very mature professional and a very good team player. He is really inspiring to the new individuals who join Grameenphone. He always tries to guide and develop the newcomers and his teammates.His continuous efforts toward customer centricity has motivated entire Technology division of Grameenphone”.

Naqib’s outstanding success and unique contribution (particularly as a fresh graduate) in the topmost telecommunications and internet service provider of Bangladesh within such a short period of time proves that it is possible to  make positive contribution through proper utilization of individual capability, merit, dedication, hard work and other attributes. This is highly encouraging for all, specially for the young and future/fresh graduates of BUET EEE department.
