As documented by Deepak Gupta

My career started after completing my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Mumbai University in 2004. Two years later, I completed my post-graduate studies at Birla Institute of Arts, Science, and Commerce, Thane, then joined Caliber Point as a specialist. After working there for five years, I held various business analyst positions at companies like Aon, Wipro, and HDFC Bank.

Having worked in the same field for a few years, I felt the need to upskill myself with the latest, in-demand technical skills. I enrolled in Simplilearn’s Artificial Engineer Master’s Program and immediately reaped the benefits. Being from a non-IT background, I always struggled to learn to code and had to invest lots of time. Simplilearn’s course framework, resources, and support helped me succeed in spite of my previous difficulties. In fact, I completed the PGP and got a job in Tech Mahindra as Tech Lead in business intelligence (BI) with a salary hike of 83 percent.

Upskilling Expertise and Support to Help You Succeed

Simplilearn is a great e-learning platform. I believe that, had I been introduced to Simplilearn earlier, my career journey would be altogether different. They have great instructors who have real-life experience in different industries.

Completing the Artificial Intelligence Engineer Master’s program from Simplilearn inspired me to become a lifelong learner. The intuitive online format, role-specific courses, and quick student support via chatbots made my learning experience enjoyable. Compared to other platforms, Simplilearn was affordable while providing great value. Also, the course curriculum was in-depth and comprehensive. The quizzes I took during the program helped improve my confidence and clear my doubts about my ability to succeed in the program. 

Now that I’ve gained the technical skills needed to transition into a more strategic business intelligence role, I plan to continue my studies and become a subject matter expert in data engineering and business intelligence.
