Confident made the entrepreneur!
S.M. Hasan completed his bachelor & master degree in Islamic History and Culture from Jagannath University in 2010. His dreams began to fade away when he started searching for jobs. In the competitive job market of Bangladesh the only openings he got were junior teaching positions in schools. Even today many of his friends are struggling to get suitable jobs as there is no any specific professional field related to the subject they had studied! Hasan, however, is now a successful and established IT entrepreneur!
Once during his job hunting days, a newspaper announcement of the IDB-BISEW IT Scholarship caught his eye. He applied and was awarded the scholarship in Database Design and Development in Round – 14 of the scholarship programme. Within a short time he became very serious about the scholarship because of the monthly maintenance allowance, strict rules, effective monitoring, international vendor certification (OCP), job-oriented syllabus and for the placement assurance guaranteed by the placement cell of the IBD-BISEW. All these unique features of the scholarship made him very confident about his future. After successfully completing the course, Hasan started working as a freelancer, working successfully for clients from the USA, Canada, UK, and Australia and the confidence gained through these engagements led him to be an entrepreneur.
In 2012, Hasan established his company, Microsys IT Solutions which provides e-commerce, software development and web portal services for national and international clients. He is working hard at his business with honesty and at present earning over one lac Taka every month. Besides, six people are working in his company. Hasan feels deeply indebted to IDB-BISEW IT Scholarship Project for transforming his life within a span of one year.
