How to Boom, Not Bust!

An Alum Connection Exploring Haseeb Mahmood’s Journey at Dell Technologies Entering and Thriving in Today’s Tech Industry Climate

2080 LSA Building Map
Tech sales and the tech industry always seem to be a hot conversation, but you may find yourself wondering if the degree you’ve chosen fits into the world of tech.

Biology major? Haseeb will tell you that fits just fine.

Communications major? Haseeb says “that’ll totally work.”

Perhaps you’re a Computer Science major but want to focus on the sales side?

Of course you can do that.

What about Cognitive Science, you say?

Well, that’s one major Haseeb can personally attest to being at home in the world of tech. Haseeb Mahmood is an LSA graduate who majored in Cognitive Science (‘22) and currently works in Tech sales — a field and profession he wasn't even aware he wanted to pursue until his senior year. After all, you only get paid when you make a sale, or don’t you? (short-answer absolutely not, but you won’t believe how many people Haseeb’s met who believed this was the case). Haseeb's excited to answer your questions regarding the world of tech, tech sales, how to apply your degree, dealing with imposter syndrome, and maybe even tell you what it’s like having a peek behind the curtain of the AI boom. So join us for lunch as we discuss these topics and many more!

About Haseeb:
Haseeb's currently a Data Protection Specialist at Dell Technologies, residing in Austin, Texas. A Cognitive Science major with a Cappo Sales Track certification, his personal blend of Michigan education gave him all the appropriate tools for a field and a profession that doesn't have a specific degree or path for how to get started in it. Haseeb's also a Michigan and Lions Football fan, and he had to work overtime to defend the Wolverines against the naysayers in his office on the historic run to the National Title. He's also a big soccer fan (F.C. Barcelona), enjoys motorsports, and is an avid seeker of live music and comedy. You can find him on any given weekend exploring new food spots in Austin, ever continuing to experience how incredible Austin is, humbly conceding how brutally wrong his initial perception of the city truly was.

Join us for this networking opportunity with Haseeb! Lunch will be provided at event.
