As documented by Sheryar Jalil
I am a highly experienced computer science enthusiast from Ontario, Canada. WIth over two decades of work experience, I have worked with several companies, including IBM.
My professional journey began in 1999 with Kuwait Oil Company and I have worked with various companies throughout my career. I am a former IBM employee where I worked in Technical Support Level II. I have education experience at a university level, but I was ready to restart my learning journey and find new job opportunities. I wanted to upgrade my skill set when I chose to enroll in the Professional Certificate Program in AI and Machine Learning that Simplilearn offered, which was created in collaboration with Purdue University. Currently, I am freelancing and looking forward to joining IBM again soon.
Prior to starting the program, I didn’t have high expectations as it was an online course, but after taking live classes, my education experience was extremely positive. The quality of interaction within the course was simply amazing. I really appreciate the wide variety of courses that Simplilearn offers and the reputed universities it has partnered with. The teaching staff is also commendable and they are very experienced.
After completing this course, my knowledge expanded multi-fold. I was offered new projects and it also helps me with my freelancing work currently. The course has benefited me immensely by updating my coding skills in Python. I am currently in the process of getting re-hired and I believe that with this certification in my portfolio, I have a very strong professional identity. Also, I am planning to start an AI based start-up, and I am confident the knowledge I gained from this program will be especially beneficial during the process. The program has added a new dimension to my professional career and I am thrilled I chose to upskill with Simplilearn.
