Looking for an opportunity to work in a reputable academic institution to enhance its role in the society and help it out in meeting its short and long-term goals, while attaining personal professional development, interesting experiences and growth. My major is International Affairs and the concentration is on culture, society, and heritage. Media analysis and research courses were substantive part of the program, and this qualifies me to be a knowledgeable research executive with a well-rounded understanding of the region’s academic institutions, culture, society, and needs. I conducted several successful presentations and research papers on the region and won the first prize for the best research poster at Qatar University in my Undergraduate years.
Upon completing my BA degree in International Affairs from Qatar University, I chose to expand my horizons and work in different fields to acquire the knowledge and expertise to be able to work in External Relations office. As a research assistant I was assigned to work with a high number of participants via multiple media channels such as, but not limited to phone, e-mails, personal interviews, online social networks, meetings, events, and surveying tools. This has advanced my communication skills and presented me as a spokesperson and an enabler. In an another research project which I worked on simultaneously, I was responsible for massive legal research, paper work, surveying newspaper articles, and writing reports on a regular basis.
