Working in the public health sector, I deal with data daily. I am originally from Nigeria, where I started my career, but when I came to Canada, I found that the work environment and how they manage data are slightly different. Naturally, I wanted to fit in and be current with the field’s latest trends, so I enrolled in Simplilearn’s Data Analyst Master’s Program. I also believed it would help me improve at my job.
I found that Simplilearn’s course helped me understand data better, and I have been able to streamline my work in terms of data visualization. These days, there are so many different tools available, and I learned Tableau, Python, R, and other tools and have started using them at my job.
I’m also using my new knowledge and skills to find new opportunities. I have landed several job interviews since I put my new data analyst certification on my LinkedIn profile. It is all because of Simplilearn’s online course, and I hope to have a better job soon.
Manage Data Better
Data is everywhere, and it is vital to make informed decisions, especially in the public health sector. When I started working in the Malaria Consortium as a monitoring and evaluation officer in 2017, it was my first experience dealing with data where I had to collect, read, and analyze data daily.
I have been working with the Nova Scotia Health Authority for one year as an administrative assistant to the research director. My work involves dealing with and analyzing data shared with policymakers.
