As documented by Gordana Vujec
I’m originally from Croatia but moved to the United States in 2006, where I live in Raleigh, North Carolina, with my husband and one child. I pursued a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Economics. In addition to that, I’m a certified Scrum Master, ECBA, Product Owner, and Agile Coach. Currently, I am working as a Business Analyst at Revarture.
Taking Time to Upskill During Recovery
I was unemployed for some time due to severe health issues, which created a gap in my professional career and made me fall behind. During this time, I was also unemployed. Therefore, I decided to upskill, so I opted for the Post Graduate Program In Business Analysis from Purdue University and Simplilearn.
I got my first job immediately after the class but stayed there for only two months. Then I looked for another job for two months and got the one I have now. I think it was challenging since I ended up talking to three or four recruiters per week. Despite all these leads, it still took me two months to find this job.

I’m Isaiah Moehring, a passionate marketing professional hailing from Arizona, United States. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in strategic communications, but despite my enthusiasm, I faced challenges in securing a job in a relevant domain. Recognizing the gap in my knowledge and skill set, I decided to upskill, fill those skills gaps, and find a new marketing opportunity. With this goal in mind, I opted for Simplilearn’s Professional Certificate Program in Digital Marketing, offered in collaboration with Purdue University. This program aimed to enhance my knowledge and provide a valuable certification as proof of my skills.
Enrollment Decision and Career Goals:
After graduating, I experienced difficulties finding work in my desired field due to a mismatch between my traditional advertising education and the industry’s demand for digital skills. Determined to overcome these obstacles and pursue a career in marketing, I sought to upskill myself. I chose Simplilearn’s Post Graduate Program In Digital Marketing recognizing the need to gain relevant knowledge, hands-on experience, and industry-recognized certification. My ultimate aim was to secure a marketing job aligned with my interests and expertise.
My experience with Simplilearn:
Upskilling with Simplilearn has proven to be the best decision I made after college. The program’s well-structured curriculum covered all the crucial aspects of digital marketing, equipping me with comprehensive knowledge. I particularly appreciated the depth and clarity with which complex concepts were explained. The instructors’ expertise and real-world insights further enriched the learning experience. Simplilearn’s Digital Marketing program not only enhanced my knowledge and skills but also provided me with the confidence to pursue my desired career path.
As documented by Jorge Barboza
Well, not many people know that I am a Grammy Award winner! I got the Latin Grammy in 2007 in the Best Short Form Video Category. I was one of the producers of the video ‘Ven A Mi Casa Esta Navidad’.
I’m from Venezuela, where I worked as a software developer, although I had some experience as a video editor and producer. I started off as a video editor and producer back in Venezuela, where I started my own company. Since people in Venezuela didn’t have access to good quality video content, that was a need I could fill. I did some videos in the United States, which allowed me to get a PR under the clause of being a resident with special abilities, so I moved to the United States 14 years ago in 2008 with my wife and my one son, who at the time was two years old. I had to start from scratch in terms of a career.
The first two years were hard, as no work could be found. So I realized I had to enter the IT sector. In 2011, I got my first job here in the United States as a software developer with a company. I worked there till 2015, then joined Nikki Beach Worldwide in 2015, where I worked for seven years as a web developer and later as an information technology manager. Over the years, I fell in love with what I was doing.
Last year, while working with Nikki Beach Worldwide, I started looking toward forwarding my career. I saw the whole technology sector taking a new direction, and cloud computing was at the center of it. I knew there were ample opportunities in cloud computing, so I wanted to learn this new technology to advance my career and change my domain from IT manager to cloud computing engineer. Since I didn’t have a formal education in this area, I decided to take a professional course, Simplilearn’s Cloud Computing Bootcamp with Caltech CTME.
