As documented by Santosh Hiremath

Excerpt: After 8 years as an Assistant Professor, I decided to change my career, and after upskilling with Simplilearn, I started working as a Data Analyst at ZeoMega. A life’s passion is not limited to one particular thing, it is often meant to change and grow as you do. This is precisely what happened to me; I was always passionate about being a teacher, it’s all I wanted to do. However, 8 years into my passion, I realized I wanted more, so I decided to upskill.

The Journey

A Bangalorean by birth, I did my graduation in Mechanical engineering from Dr. Ambedkar Institute of Technology, Bangalore, in 2010. I did my post-graduation from Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, Bidar, in Computer Integrated manufacturing in 2013. After my studies, I worked in small companies before finding my passion for teaching. I worked as an Assistant Professor in G.H. Raisoni Society, College of Engineering and Management, Pune for around 8 years.

Realizing that my growth had become stunted and teaching no longer excited me, I decided to completely change my career. I have also always been passionate about technology and software-related things. The rapid change in technology made me feel that this is the right time for me to update my knowledge. So, I decided to enroll myself in Simplilearn’s Data Scientist Master’s Program to upskill. 

The Simplilearn Course

I chose Simplilearn because it is the best online Bootcamp platform and has top leading faculties from all around the globe also, the course curriculum was so vast that I couldn’t resist myself to take this course. My experience with simplilearn was great, I believe the live classes, labs, and projects helped me a lot. Also, the teaching staff and support team were very cooperative and quick. I am glad to be a Simplilearn’s Alumni, and the best part of the course was its project Assessment and the course update every month.
