Restructured the entire unorganized data system (over a thousand individual units) at a small RE firm owned by one billionaire. Built they website from scratch; take photos of every unit types and increase rental efficiency by 40 percent through digital integration. All in the first quarter of work as a kid just trying to pay for target university without any chance of getting students loan (international student)

All I got was more 3 am calls from the owner asking me to do more. At least they allow me to print whatever I want and study at work while still getting paid.

Cash and cash equivalents: $138,311
Financial instruments and other inventory positions owned: $448,166

Can you please explain what you mean by rental efficiency?

For me, I used to work at a relocation/real estate company in accounting. I built processes in several software systems to practically automate what was taking about a dozen man hours a week. In exchange, I got a 3% raise and then they asked me to show our new "India partner team" how to run those programs less than a year later while putting me on a PIP. I showed them how to do everything incorrectly on recorded trainings over the next few months while preparing to leave, walked out with a hard drive of proprietary data, then traded it for a non-disparagement agreement signed by the CFO.

Rental Efficiency was easily improved in my case because the company is owned by one person so i could have the freedom to do whatever i want. Before I arrived at the company, no one had experience renting using the internet and digital content. Most of our employees are older so they are more used to face to face showing and renting which highly restricted what we could do as a company. I came in and executed what the owner wanted (website, contact via internet, 4k virtual tour, high res. photos).Using my system, we could easily have a move out notice and pre-rent the same unit within the day.

The only part I regret doing is automated too much of my job so i can easily be fired if they decide that my robots are doing most of the work while i just scrolling through Arbitrage Andy for 2 hours is not worth it.

I banged this chick from the Scandinavian office.

But she didn't want her reputation sullied so only a few of my buddy's there knew.

Was some of my best work.

In the month leading up to closing, worked so much that I was basically getting 4 hours of sleep a night every night, most weekends included. Not very impressive, mind you, just grueling.

The firm I was at had a timeliness policy for juniors at my level - we had to be at the office by X o'clock, and were allowed X latenesses a year. That month alone I accrued 2X or so.

Ended up having a meeting with my handlers in HR where they asked "why?". I basically looked them in the face and said "I don't know what to say guys - when you get 4 hours of sleep a night, you just don't shower as fast in the morning."

To their credit they exercised their discretion to grant me leniency despite being technically afoul of the rules. But at the time it made me feel pretty wildly undervalued by the management part of the organization that was not in the trenches with us.

Yesterday I was so hung over I could barely keep my eyes open. Pretty sure I got away with it.

Story #2: I once attended the after-afterparty for my group's holiday party. This one was on our boss' personal card, from what I understand.

In our revelry, many of my colleagues ordered rounds and rounds of Dom Perignon and mixed it with red bull. I felt poorly about wasting a good bottle on my boss' dime, so I did not partake of the mixture. Definitely didn't get recognized for my conscientiousness.
