As documented by Shruti

I wanted to upskill through the PGP in Data Science course from Simplilearn and ended up successfully changing my career domains and gaining an additional 90% salary increase!

My Career Journey So Far

I started my career in 2017, working as an Analyst at Capgemini. After working for 3+ years there, I decided to upskill myself in the field of Business Analytics. While pursuing the course, I got placed in HCL as a Consultant. As I explored the field, I developed an interest in Data Science and AI. I decided to advance my knowledge and switch my career. I opted for the PGP Data Science course on the recommendation of my husband, who took one of the courses from Simplilearn. 

The Challenge

After working for a few years as an Analyst, I wanted to switch my career domain toward Artificial Intelligence and Data Science. My husband took a course from Simplilearn earlier, and as he liked the overall course structure and experts it provides, he recommended I take the course to upskill myself.

The Simplilearn Solution

My journey with Simplilearn was great. The comprehensive curriculum of the course was one of the best features. Everything in the course is well formulated and organized to make the concepts easier to understand. Another feature that I liked about Simplilearn was the chatbot system it provides. I posted my doubts there, and whoever knew the concept would solve it and share it with me. The learning experience was made easier with the amazing Simplilearn customer care, who guided and supported me whenever I needed some help. 

The Simplilearn Impact

First of all, the course gave me all the kinds of insights and practical knowledge required in the field of Data Science. After completing the course, I successfully pursued a career domain change with a better understanding of Data Science and AI, accompanied by a 91% increment in my salary. Moreover, the knowledge I gained enabled me to contribute to my husband’s start-up. 

Simplilearn is a good platform to upskill yourself and grow professionally. I have already recommended some of my colleagues and friends to upskill themselves from Simplilearn.
