Upskilling is a fairly new term that a lot of people are just learning. I, myself had no idea what upskilling meant until a friend of mine led me to it. He explained that in order to get an edge in the market, honing your skills is a must. Even if you want to switch careers, having prior knowledge can help you get ahead. This is exactly what happened ot me.
I have a dual degree of Bachelor of Science from Pune University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University. I started working as an research analyst at Vayuna Voicetech Pvt. Ltd, a Nasik-based company, while completing my Post Graduation at Pune University in English Language Literature and Linguistics.
After about 3 and a half years, I decided it was time to make my future away from Nashik, so I started applying to various MNCs, such as Accenture, Wipro and Infosys, and TCS. However, sadly I was rejected by them all. That’s when I learned about upskilling from my friend, who told me that it would give me a better chance at getting my dream job. I searched for a recognized and reputed institute, which is when I came across Simplilearn.
