Syed's Proof of Work Success Story - Issue #02

"It’s not always as hard as you think it to be."

Hii Syed, Pleased to have you here,

Please tell us about your background and what opportunity were you seeking?

So honoured to be here, I’m from Hyderabad, I am enrolled in computer science engineering, and am currently in my final year; later in the story, you will get to know why an Engineer would want to do a Graphic designing Internship.

In one sentence, why should people read this article?

It’s a story of determination and contribution, that proves -

"Success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right."

Tell us about your adventure while landing your Dream Internship.

Initially, I was working on my dad's business. Particularly, in the design of new products and logos. And that’s when I got connected to core members of Fueler on Twitter. At this point, I got connected with Anshu and Abhishek.

As I had a strong connection built with them over Dms and at the same time when I was finding some ideas for my major project at college, I had one idea in my mind to validate, so I thought of sharing it with Anshu and Aquib and they were extremely supportive.

Soon, I joined Fueler’s discord community, and one fine day I asked about the internship, “Is it possible that I can be on the other side of Fueler which is the building side?

1 month down the line I learned a lot of things about design specifically. I had exposure to design also Riten Sir taught me a lot that I didn't know earlier.

Because of some previous proof of work that I uploaded on fueler he offered me a Graphic design position because Riten Sir (Founder) and the team knew I am a curious guy and work on new things from time to time. I didn't have a clear vision of what I wanted to work on before asking for an internship, all I want to do was to work on the product.

But Riten Sir then said “You will work as a graphic designer with us”. And I accepted the opportunity with open arms.

Why did you want to land your first ever opportunity in the Fueler itself?

Fueler is an adorable product you will just love it by seeing it and then the vision and mission of team fueler regarding the product is amazing.

The mission to help people build some credibility with proof of work was something that I liked the most.

Not to forget the UX of team fueler. Man, that's unmatchable! They may or may not know you even for a day but they are ready to help you. As Riten Sir always says "Help Permissionlessly" that's what Team fueler does every other day

What’s that one thing You love the most about Fueler?

There are a bunch of amazing things I would like to mention about fueler but the one that I like the most is the Discover section.

It's because it takes you on a ride of some amazingly creative things that the creators have cooked freshly. Straight Outta their kitchen onto the discover page.

I might bump into a landing page design from Manivannan and the next one would be a great blog from Tripti. So that's just amazing!

Lastly, what are those right things you did that helped you achieve this

  1. I networked with the right people at the right time.
  2. I joined the right community
  3. I asked for help from the right people
  4. I engaged in the community in the right manner

During the first month, I worked on design and memes.

The second one was a hell of a ride I did work on Community Engagement, Design, Memes, Research, Data sorting, and much more, I lost the count. 😁

Use the right platform to show your Proof of work i.e

How do we know if it’s right for us?

Just Go with your Intent, It’s not always as hard as you think it to be.

Special thanks to Fatima for covering this success story.
