GOT NEW PROJECTS

As documented by Boopathy D

I am Boopathy D, a resident of Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. Having expertise in teaching and knowledge of Cyber Security, I wanted a career in the latter. The requirement was a certification from a recognized institute, pushing me to work hard for a certified course. Currently, I am freelancing using my knowledge and skills and looking for a job opportunity in the domain. 

The Journey 

I am a Ph.D. Scholar from Bharathiar University. Post completion, I served the institute as a previous guest faculty at the Department of Extension & Career Guidance. Apart from teaching, I find myself interested in ethical hacking. Concerning the same, I also hold a degree in Postgraduate Diploma in Cyber Security. Owing to my interest in the latter field, I wanted to continue my career in this field, which began my journey to a new career choice. 

The Challenge 

My interest in Cyber Security and my will to work in the field required a certified degree from a recognized institute. I discovered that this career domain is full of job opportunities and capable of providing professional growth. However, the search wasn’t easy as a good educational platform providing quality knowledge and skills is difficult to find. 

Simplilearn Solution

I came across Simplilearn’s Advanced Executive Program in CyberSecurity. They offered the program in association with IIIT Bangalore, a top institute to show off on my resume. Apart from this, Simplilearn’s customer service is exceptional as well. They ensured timely answers to my query, which motivated and helped me finalize Simplilearn for my next career path. 

Simplilearn’s teaching faculties are good, with an abundance of helping and guiding nature. Their comprehensive curriculum and blended learning approach providing both live and recorded lectures were the best pastime for me. The regular tests, projects, and practice labs were personally beneficial to me as I learned from practice. They also provided hands-on experience  with the practical concepts and their execution in the current market. My upskilling journey with Simplilearn was great. To move ahead in your career, upskilling is a major accomplishment to achieve greater heights.

As documented by Amit Kumar Das

I am a keen learner and am passionate about exploring new skills to add to my skill set. My goal in life has always been to perform my best in every aspect. I want to expand my skill set and learn new techniques to achieve my long-term goals. A huge thanks to Simplilearn; they helped me land my desired job and climb the ladder in Cybersecurity.

The Journey 

I joined the engineering industry right after college. After completing my engineering degree, I got a campus placement in TCS. I was initially working for the monitoring team at TCS, but later on, after a lot of hard work, I landed myself in the L2 team. Then, I transitioned into the email sec team with my skills for keen details. My team lead and the team members were great, and I learned a lot from them. I am currently working as a Technical Consulting Engineer at CISCO. 

The Challenge 

I started my career in the corporate industry right after my graduation. I got a good job at TCS and worked there for 7+ years. I wanted to switch my job to explore new areas of technology. I tried to grasp as many skills and learn as much as possible from my job, but that was not enough. When I tried to go for interviews, I was failing to get a job because I didn’t have a complete skill set. I was disheartened by my rejections. I decided to learn from the failures and started to note down the types of questions asked in the interviews and get an idea of what was lacking in my skill set. 

After analysing the questions and the skills required, I explored ways to enhance my skill set and get my desired job. I came to the conclusion that I need to expand my domain and add cyber security as a skill if I want to get my dream job and become a CISO. From entering the industry as an IT Analyst to becoming a Technical Consulting Engineer, it has been a great journey with learning and great experiences. 

Simplilearn Solution

After getting an idea about the skills, I need to add to my skill set. I did thorough research for online courses through which I can get the right guidance and practical knowledge for my career. I was looking for a program that was affordable and elaborate for learning cyber security when I came around Simplilearn. I contacted Simplilearn customer care, learned about the Advanced Executive Program in Cyber Security, IIIT-B course, and decided to opt for this course.  

The design of Simplilearn’s Advanced Executive Program in Cyber Security, IIIT-B, was very elaborate and included various hands-on practicals. The course included a certificate from IIIT-Bangalore and had a job-assist program at the end included a certificate from IIIT-Bangalore and had a job-assist program after completion. The faculty members were industry experts and kept every student involved in the sessions. The course also included a lot of Q&As and doubt-clearing sessions. This course is best for people who are new to the field of Cyber Security.
