You should know that today's employers look at your entire social media footprint starting from LinkedIn. If you are looking for money for a startup idea, looking for employment or looking to connect, the first question you get asked is for a professional profile in addition to a resume.

Zarina grew up in the heart of Silicon Valley with innovative tech and game-changing ideas all around her. Growing up in this creative hub and cultural nucleus, she came to realize how technology can positively impact and revolutionize our world. It’s therefore no surprise that she works in tech. Zarina is currently a Sales Development Team Lead at LinkedIn, a company that has completely revolutionized how companies hire, market and sell. In her role in LinkedIn’s Global Sales Organization, she has gained experience interfacing and consulting with a broad range of companies – from LinkedIn’s largest global clients to 1 person executive search and staffing firms. Zarina is passionate about motivating her team and helping them develop professionally and personally every day. Her passion for selling for LinkedIn stems from her previous role as an Engineering Recruiter at LinkedIn. In that role, she was responsible for creating a scalable global process that revolutionized how LinkedIn recruited Applications Engineers. Prior to joining LinkedIn, Zarina began her career in financial services at Fisher Investments -- a private asset management firm – where she was responsible for onboarding new clients and accounts to the firm’s Private Client Group. She graduated from UC Berkeley in 2011 with a double major in International Political Economy and Political Science with a concentration in globalization. While at Berkeley, she founded the university’s first Women’s Squash team and managed a team of 30 Directors and Interns as the Student Resources Deputy Chief-of- Staff in the Associated Students of the University of California. She loves OPEN-SV and is passionate about their mission of connecting entrepreneurs and professionals who can help each other jointly excel.
