As documented by Sethu Baskaran
As someone who believes in upskilling and hard work as the key to achieving my goal, I pursued a PGP in Digital Transformation course with Simplilearn to advance my knowledge and get certified. Still, as a bonus, I ended up with a better job and a 20% salary increment!
My career journey so far
Fresh out of college, I started my career as a QA and grew to be a program manager. After gaining 15+ years of experience as a techno-functional leader, working in consulting, quality management, process excellence, data analysis, hyper-automation, and digital transformation, currently, I am focusing on digital projects and the program management office for CXOs. Today, I work as an IT Consultant at TCS, all thanks to the PGP in Digital Transformation course by Simplilearn.
In today’s day and age, digital transformation is a growing field considering the digital revolution and its tremendous potential. With the aim to work on digital projects and contribute to project management offices for CXOs, my challenge was to build up my skills for the same. I have always believed in experimenting with my work and the roles I perform, so I knew upskilling would be the best way to advance my knowledge and gain certifications for the roles I was aiming for.
