Business Engagement Intern
Zuhayer Hussain started with Futures and Options as a participant in the Internship Program as a high school student. Zuhayer is currently the Business Engagement Intern, assisting the Business Engagement Manager with tracking the on-boarding of business partners and prospects, tracking program and partner data to increase the efficiency of engagement efforts, and assisting with supervisor orientations.
Zuhayer attended Queens Vocational and Technical High School, participating in the electrical training track. During his four years in high school, he was chosen to intern for "The Edward J. Malloy Initiative for Construction Skills, Inc." to learn hands-on skills in the construction industry. Although Zuhayer has a passion for the Electrical field, he found his true passion in business by participating in the Internship Program with Futures and Options. As Zuhayer shares with many prospective partners, the major decision in changing his career pathway was because Futures and Options helped him build professional communication, resume building, and networking skills, as well as insight into marketing by being matched with a company that best fit his aspirations. Zuhayer is currently enrolled in Brooklyn College and hopes to declare his major in Business at the end of the year. He is most eager to help recruit new businesses in industries that appeal to young people, as well as recruit employers in fields that are up and coming in New York City.
