I made the perfect career transition through Simplilearn’s PGP in Data Science course and, as a result, got a new job with a 400% salary hike!

My Career Journey So Far

I completed my B. Tech as a civil engineer in 2019. But six months into the job, I realized I was not satisfied working in the field. I began to explore new areas of interest and came across the field of data science. It was appealing to me but also daunting since it was a completely new field. Therefore, I decided to build foundational knowledge in the field through Simplilearn’s PGP in Data Science. 

After completing the course, I landed a good job and currently work as a data scientist. 

The Challenge

I wanted to change my career path from working as a Civil engineer to working in the field of Data Science. Therefore, after going through Simplilearn reviews, I decided to upskill myself and opted for Postgraduate Program in Data Science in association with Purdue University from Simplilearn. This course from Simplilearn turned out to be the best decision for me as it helped me successfully transition into my dream career.

The Simplilearn Solution

The course was designed to slowly groom me from the basic concepts to the advanced ones. It contained several industry-relevant projects, which were extremely important for getting hands-on skills. One of the best features was that it came with blended learning of both live lectures and self-paced learning, enabling me to study according to my time.

Simplilearn’s Impact

My learning journey with Simplilearn was excellent. Being a complete fresher in Data Science, this course equipped me with the right skills to step into the field of my dreams. It gave me confidence and ammunition to pursue this field, of which I knew very little. 

After completing the course, I secured a job as a Data Scientist with a 400% hike in my salary. Completing the course was the best decision of my life, and all the things I was taught are actually being used in my day-to-day activities.
