As documented by Kedar Alladwar

I have always been a person who strives for growth and enjoys upskilling my knowledge. I aim to give my 100% to everything I do. Enhancing my skills and learning new technologies is the only way by which I can have progressive career growth. All thanks to Simplilearn, they helped kickstart a great career and my dream to work as Business Analyst.

The Journey 

I come from a hospitality background. After graduating from IHM, Hyderabad, I pursued my MBA from Amity University. I joined McDonald’s as an Assistant Manager and worked there for almost 3 years. With a good experience, I switched my job and joined, Hyderabad, as a Facilities Operations Manager. I recently joined Qualcomm in Hyderabad and work as a Business Systems Analyst.

The Challenge 

The hospitality industry was hit hard when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. The industry suffered huge losses, and people were even losing their jobs. The industry is still recovering from the losses. I have been working in the hospitality industry for the past 5 years. Even after 5 years, my CTC didn’t meet my expectations, and I couldn’t see any scope for my career growth. 

I wanted to enhance my skills and have a progressive career. Around a year back, I learned about business analysis and started researching its scope. I found it to be an exciting and evolving option. So, I decided to switch my career. From working as a Facilities Operations Manager to working as a Business Analyst, my journey has been a smooth ride. 

Simplilearn Solution

As someone with limited knowledge in the field of business analysis, I was searching for a program that would provide me with a solid foundation in business analysis and practical experience. I researched online courses that would provide me with the right guidance and skills to have a successful career. Before choosing Simplilearn, I looked around the internet for reviews on Simplilearn and got very positive feedback. 

The overall curriculum design of Simplilearn’s Professional Certificate Program on Business Analysis was very elaborate and easy to understand. The faculties were very helpful and guided me throughout the course. The notes and study material provided by my instructor, Mr Vaibhav Pande, was very helpful to me. They made my transition from the hospitality industry to business analysis very smooth. 

The Impact 

I was in a low position in my career with no growth and low income. When I decided to make a leap and change my career path, Simplilearn’s efficiently designed course made my transition a piece of cake. The course not only provided me with knowledge of business analysis but also helped me gain practical understanding. After completing the course, I was able to land a job as a Business Analyst with a 50% hike in my salary too!

The course was taught by the best in the industry. As the course has collaborated with Purdue University, I got a chance to attend the masterclasses by the renowned faculties of the university. I also got a chance to be a part of the Purdue University Alumni Association. The experts’ experiences helped me to understand the real-life applications of concepts. The faculties also made sure that I was well-prepared for my job role. I am glad that I enrolled myself in the course. The course designed by Simplilearn is just perfect and the best way to start your journey in business analysis.
