As documented by Shruti Iyer
After a gap in career due to personal obligations, Simplilearn’s Business Analyst Masters Program allowed me to shift my career and land a new job as a Business Analyst with Tech Mahindra. It’s really difficult to resume your dream career when you have a gap in your resume. I’ve learned that upskilling can help you get back on track. Simplilearn’s Business Analyst Masters Program helped me get my career back and my dream career. Here’s my upskilling journey!
I graduated from Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering in 2008 from the Government College of Engineering, Amravati. This helped me get a job as an Associate Consultant with IBM, where I worked for 7.5 years from 2008 to 2015. Realizing I wanted to give time to my family and my new baby on the way, I decided to take some time off from my career. A few years later, I decided I wanted to get back to building my career, but jobs for people with gaps in their resumes are hard to come by. While my interests lay in Data Science and Business Analytics, I got a job as a Customer Service Associate in Amazon in 2017. The best way I could get a heard start in my career would be through upskilling.
