I live in the beautiful state of Colorado in the United States. With almost 10 years of working experience, I currently work as a senior consultant at Point B. I completed my degree in finance from Bryant University, and continued upskilling as a cloud architect with Simplilearn. The certification helped me develop new skills in cloud architecture, which is one of the booming IT fields. I am able to execute my learnings and knowledge in my current role. The course came up with a lot of tests and industry-relevant projects that further strengthened my practical knowledge. 

Overall, my elearning journey was incredible. My certification helped me stand out in the crowd and added more colors to my professional growth. 

Professional Journey

I have been working as a senior consultant at Point B for seven months now. I have almost a decade of experience in the consulting sector where I have previously worked with various organizations. Consulting has always been my dream job. Before Point B, I worked at CGI as a senior consultant for almost three years. 

Choosing to Upskill

The IT industry is one of the fastest growing industries currently. I developed my interest in that field and wanted to work in IT consulting to expand my work areas. And to do so, upskilling and getting certified from an elearning program, like Simplilearn’s Azure Cloud Architect Master’s Program, was the right choice.
