Mustansar helps keep the office running everyday, and does a lot of work in the background to help our offices. A coworker of his, Naveed R., told us how much he enjoys working with Mustansar. “Mustansar is energetic, passionate, and a quick learner. I enjoy working with him and it’s good to have someone like Mustansar on your team. He stays late sometimes when he’s needed, and he loves to take on new tasks. The best part is he is always ready for any kind of challenge and always gives his best.”
Asad M, the head of our IT Department, had this to say about his team member: “Mustansar is a very hard working member of our network team. He is also able to pick up and learn new skills very fast. He has helped us to manage systems and networks in a very efficient way. He is young and smart, and I think he will be very successful if he continues going down the path he is on now.”
We wanted to get to know this hard worker and what makes him tick, so we decided to have a chat with him.
