As documented by Aniket Kulkarni.
I’m a native and current resident of Pune, India. When I decided to advance my career, I chose the Simplilearn Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Data Analytics. I felt like I had reached a saturation point in my career and was not seeing any potential for growth. I realized that my career had reached a plateau and that in order to grow, I needed to upskill.
With a master’s degree in physics and hopes of obtaining a Ph.D., my career path didn’t immediately lead me to the data analytics field. It wasn’t until financial constraints kept me from doctoral studies that I began considering how I could incorporate my interests in data analytics into my career.
Data science and data analytics were a backup in case I was not able to do my Ph.D. So, even when I joined ZocDoc, I joined on the condition that I would get to explore data analytics or SQL. I was able to get some hands-on experience there.
Course Partners and Career Services Helped Me Choose Simplilearn
A determining factor for my choice to upskill with Simplilearn’s PGP in Data Analytics was the program’s close partnership with world-class leaders in higher education and technology. There were so many other platforms on the table. But the course at Simplilearn was in collaboration with IBM and Purdue University, which ultimately influenced my decision.
