As documented by Gordana Vujec
Gordana needed to upskill and catch up on technologies and skills she had lost ground with due to health-related issues. She was looking for a means of filling those knowledge gaps, while not having the process negatively impact her work time.
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 Professional Certificate 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.
My Simplilearn Training Has Me Moving Towards My Ultimate Goals
The program enhanced my knowledge and skills in the field of Business Analysis. I wasn’t aware of how many certifications are necessary for a Business Analyst. Simplilearn helped me understand the importance of upskilling and certification. The course helped me secure a job as a Business Analyst at Revarture.
My experience with Simplilearn was great. I enjoyed the live classes the most as they were very interactive and could connect personally with the instructors. The arrangement helped me ask questions directly. One of the best things about the course was that I could also record the classes for future reference. Also, the course had a comprehensive curriculum. The projects at the end of the course were quite advantageous and practical, with flexible completion deadlines.
