Having a job that you are interested in and one that keeps you enthusiastic is relatively vital to boost work productivity. I did not realize this not until I lost my will to even continue my job. It had become a repetitive task that I no longer was satisfied with. So, that was the time I felt the need to literally upskill and choose another career path.
I graduated from KCG College of Technology in Mechanical Engineering in 2016. Currently, I work as a Data Scientist at Ford Motor Company and live in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. I started my career by working as a Machine Learning Data Associate at Amazon in 2019. Later in June 2021, I became a Data Science Engineer at VuNet Systems.
I am skilled in Machine Learning, Statistical Data Analysis, Machine Learning Algorithms, PostgreSQL, Data Analytics, Tableau, Microsoft SQL Server, SQL python, R (Programming Language), and RStudio. While working as a Data Engineer, I developed, built, experimented and maintained databases and large-scale processing systems.
After nearly working for 4 years in the Machine Learning Data and Data Science Engineer field, I can feel that I am not as passionate as I used to be. As I was not getting any sense of full work satisfaction, I looked for other career opportunities. I am aware that Data Science is a thriving domain with plenty of work opportunities, so I wanted to move my career into the Data Science domain.
The Simplilearn Course
I enrolled in the Data Scientist Masters Program offered by Simplilearn to upgrade myself and learn new skills. I also completed Machine Learning Advanced Training and Tableau Desktop 10 Qualified Associate courses to upskill myself.
Simplilearn’s Data Scientist course was a huge help for me in acquiring the required knowledge and skills, including Data Visualization, Statistical analysis and computing, Processing large data sets, SQL, etc. As my previous career was related to Data Engineering and Machine Learning, it has become easy for me to finish this course.
