Huseynova could not be reached for comment.
According to Huseynova’s now-deleted LinkedIn page, she graduated from CUNY Brooklyn College in June 2021 with a degree in finance before getting a job as a private banker at Citi, a role “building loyalty and driving sales.” To help foster relationships with customers “for individual consumer customers,” according to the bank.
The average city employee in Huseynova’s role makes just under $75,000 a year, according to recruiting site Glassdoor.
Huseynova held an entry-level position for a Wall Street firm for just two years before she was fired.
The City’s move to fire Huseynova comes after several business executives threatened to deny employment opportunities to Harvard students who signed a letter blaming Israel for Hamas’s violent attacks.
Hedge fund billionaire Bill Ackman led the initiative, and doubled down on his demand that Harvard release a list of signers of the controversial letter, which failed to outwardly condemn Hamas.
“If you were managing a business, would you hire someone who would blame victims of a terrorist group’s despicable violent acts?” Ackman — founder of New York hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management — shared on his X account last week. “I do not think so.”
Although his call for students to walk out was described as “harassment,” the 57-year-old ignored the criticism — and at least a dozen business executives also supported Ackman.
Among them: Jonathan Newman, CEO of salad chain Sweetgreen; David Duell, CEO of health care services firm EasyHealth; and Elle Resnick, CEO of Belong, a rental housing startup.
