As documented by Carlos Linares
I came to the United States from Peru 17 years ago, and today I work as the assistant professor of human resources and management and international business at Midway University in the Bluegrass State of Kentucky. I hold a Ph.D. in human resources and leadership from Sullivan University, and before coming to the U.S., I was a college professor in my home country.
My advanced degree and teaching background have made me passionate about learning new things and improving my skills. About six years ago, I decided to become a subject matter expert in business intelligence and took the necessary steps to gain that knowledge. My research took me to Simplilearn’s Post Graduate Program in Business Analysis in partnership with Purdue University.
Before enrolling in Simplilearn’s Post Graduate Program in Business Analysis, I had zero knowledge about using tools such as excel, tableau, power BI and power query. After completing the course, I was able to use these applications properly. It proved to be a total career game-changer. I’m excited to report that starting in Fall 2023, the university is putting me in charge of a new department focused on business analysis. I even got a salary bump. Simplilearn’s flexible online course provided an ideal upskilling experience.
