As documented by Nitin Kusare
Sometimes in life, you get stuck and complacent, which often happens when working. Once we enter a comfort zone, we are reluctant to leave it. This is what happened to me; I was comfortable working in my job until I realized that it no longer made me happy. That’s when I decided to actually upskill and change my career.
I graduated in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Mumbai and pursued an MBA from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies in Finance and Operations in 2018. With a working experience of 10+ years, I am currently working as a Project Manager- Data Science & Analytics at EXL. My work experience has revolved around as a Techno-Commercial Project Manager with 10+ years working in the MEP Project Management industry.
I am skilled in Planning & Procurement, Design, Techno-commercial activities, Financial Analysis, Subcontractors’ Billing Reconciliation Processes, and Senior Management Communications. After working for years in the Construction Project management domain.
After working for almost 9 years in the Project Management Construction domain, I realized that it’s a hectic job. I couldn’t maintain a work-life balance, so I researched and decided to shift to the Data Science domain. During my MBA, I also learned statistics and analytics, so I wanted to utilize those skills and transition in my career.
The Simplilearn Course
I opted for the Data Scientist Masters Program from Simplilearn to upskill myself. Moreover, I also Simplilearn’s Artificial Intelligence Engineer Master’s Program and studied both courses simultaneously.
The course from Simplilearn was an excellent platform for me to develop my knowledge from scratch, especially coming from a non-IT industry professional. After completing the course, I developed an excellent knowledge and understanding of the Data Science domain.
