So tell us about your time with Allshore.
I am honored and proud to be a part of Allshore. I love working with everyone. Frankly speaking, this is my career’s best time. This is the only job in which I have learned so many new techniques.
How do you feel about working with American clients? Any specific struggles or rewards with working with people from the U.S?
In my 3 year career with Allshore, most of the time I found them very kind and cooperative. They only want solutions and the truth.
Have you worked with local clients before you started with our company?
Yes, I worked in ISP as a System Support Supervisor.
Have you noticed any major differences between working with local clients and international ones?
Yes, local clients were rude to us when they didn’t get a solution right away. Here at Allshore we always find our clients calm and cooperative which helps us to provide them real solutions. At Allshore, the biggest plus is teamwork, which is not available here in our local jobs.
So, tell me about your family.
After work, I do only one thing: spend time with my son. I take my family out almost every weekend, and when I am home I make sure I am giving my complete attention to my family. My son is three years old, and my wife and I have been married for six years. She is a beautician and a social worker who loves to teach poor kids for free. We met 13 years ago and got married for love.
What do you like to do with your family on the weekends?
We go to parks, play areas, get late night ice cream, and sometimes get dinner at a famous place. My family is my world.
Do you have any hobbies that you like to do?
Yes, I am a good cricket player and love to take part in it. I like to watch history and adventure based movies like Vertical limit, Patriot, and Gladiator. Gladiator is my favorite movie so far.
Do you play in the cricket matches with others in the company?
Yes, I am the part of the team and always take part in the outside work entertainment activities. In fact, I am member of the organizing committee.
Do you have any fun nicknames?
Reeelo is my mother’s name for me. Ricky is my nickname at work, and I really like it.
What is the best thing you have ever bought for yourself? Your favorite item?
Well, I don’t have an item that I would say is the best. I love humans not things, so I would say my son.
What is the best advice you have ever received from someone?
Speak truth and accept your mistakes.
Raheel received his education in the city of Gujrat, which is his hometown. His brother encouraged him to join the IT field, and so Raheel earned his Masters in Computer Science with a specialization in Networking. He also has a Bachelors in Humanities. If Raheel could travel anywhere in the world, he would like to go to Saudi Arabia for a pilgrimage, and to Europe because he loves history.
