I have the zeal to learn different skills to upgrade myself. Once I came across the responsibilities and job requirements of a data analyst, I was driven to learn this skill and make a shift from an EMM Trading Tool Analyst position.
I completed my master’s in Electrical Engineering from New York University. Following this, I got an offer letter for an EMM Trading Tool Analyst at SGCIB in 2017. After working here for some time, I felt the need to upgrade myself and learn the skills needed for a data analyst role. For this purpose, I chose the Data Analytics course from Simplilearn. After completing this course, my manager saw the potential in me and helped me shift to the data analyst position in the organisation.
Later I pursued Big Data Hadoop and Spark Developer courses from Simplilearn and got selected to be an Associate Data Engineer at Publicis Sapient.
I was driven to learn data science to upgrade my skills for the role of data analytics when I learned about this domain from my friends and colleagues. Eventually, I wanted to shift to this sector to improve my career prospects. To upskill myself, I started searching for online platforms that offered the best data analytics certification. When I compared the course features of Simplilearn with other platforms, I found Simplilearn to be the best. Therefore, I started my learning.
My experience with Simplilearn was great. I faced some issues with the course completion date, and I am thankful the support team extended the course completion deadline, which offered me great flexibility.
As I was a complete beginner in the chosen course, I was skeptical if I would be able to understand all the concepts. However, the course was well-structured, and the instructors explained every topic in the simplest way. This helped me complete the course with a thorough understanding.
