So, let’s get started! Tell us a little about yourself.
Okay, let me start with my introduction. My name Irshad as you know, but one thing you don’t know is that my nickname is “Irshi.” My CRM, Brittany, invented it for me. I belong to a small village in the Lodhran District in Punjab. My town’s name is Haveli Naseer Khan.
What college did you attend?
I completed my graduation from the University of Engineering and Technology, where I earned my Computer Systems Engineering degree.
What got you started in IT?
I had an interest in making software and had good programming skills. That’s why I moved into this field. It is also a growing field in Pakistan, and there are a lot of jobs here in IT. So it’s a good career to grow in. On the day of my first interview, I went to the company’s building but they were closed. The HR manager told me the wrong date! So that was a funny start.
Do you have any hobbies?
As for games, I like to play cricket. My other hobbies are watching movies, visiting hill stations in the mountains, and chitchatting with friends. I also like to eat tasty foods.
What is your favorite movie?
My favorites are Troy, Braveheart, and Gladiator. I also like a few science fiction movies.
And what are you favorite tasty foods?
My favorites are pizza, fish, burgers, macaroni, and also a few local dishes.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
I would try to establish peace in the world, and to make the differences between people obsolete.
Do you have a favorite quote?
“The ability to learn is the most important quality a leader can have.”
So, what do you and your family like to do in your free time?
We like to go out for dinner and visit parks sometimes. We visit exhibitions, but most importantly we enjoy going shopping.
Tell us about your family!
I have three brothers and three sisters. I’m married, and we have a daughter who is six and a half months old. My mother lives with us, and my younger siblings also live with us for their education.
Have you traveled anywhere interesting?
That would be Qila Derawar. It’s a very historical ancient fort located in Bahawalpur. It is many centuries old, but it is standing and its condition much like its original condition.
Where would you like to travel to next?
I want to travel to an island if I could. I’d like to see Santorini in the Aegean Sea. It’s one of the Cyclades islands that are popular for their landscapes, villages, and cube-like houses.
So, if you were stuck on a deserted island, who would you want with you?
I’d want to be with my mother. She is the lady who has helped me through every trouble.
How would your friends describe you?
They would say “Irshad has a soft heart and is an honest person. He is fair in his dealings.”
Do you have any funny stories that you would like to share?
Once I got the chance to participate in a drama. The story had some girl characters, but unfortunately we did not have girls. So I had to perform the role of a girl and sang a song when the lover left.
Irshad describes himself as someone who is always ready to take on challenges and we want to thank him for all his hard work he’s done with our team!
