I took a break from my Sales Manager job. With fast-paced progress in the industry, it was necessary to learn new tactics and emerging technologies. This motivation led me to take a course to learn more about marketing. 

The Journey 

I am a person who has always worked in the startup environment in Barcelona. I have always been related to sales. Though being in the industry, I was still unaware of its mechanistic aspect. I held a will to understand a little bit more about how marketing works and where the leads came from. It encouraged me to look for learning. 

The Challenge 

The will to learn deep marketing insights was enough to motivate me. However, consistency requires quality material, experts, and a good choice of an educational platform. All of this wasn’t easy to find in one package. Additionally, changing the job perspective to a learning perspective required a mindset change, which I had to work through personally. 

Simplilearn Solution

I found the solution to all the issues. Firstly working on myself, I took a break from my job to give myself time to learn and apply skills through focus. Moreover, I found all the features: quality study material, expert guidance, and great Simplilearn customer service. The course material was easy to follow, and the comprehensive curriculum answered all my doubts. Furthermore, I even got an opportunity to work on new projects and gain hands-on experience.

Right after graduation, I struggled to make sense of my career goals. So when I came across a digital marketing course online, I was fascinated by the field and decided to upskill and be job ready by completing the Digital Marketing Specialist Masters Program from Simplilearn. I also landed several internships during the course and a paid internship after completing it!

My career journey so far

I graduated with a Bachelor of Computer Science from Nalanda College, Bihar. Fresh out of college, I was confused and unsure about my career path. During the lockdown, I came across Google’s ‘Fundamentals of Digital marketing course’ and was fascinated by this field. So, I decided to upgrade my knowledge and upskilled myself with the Digital Marketing Specialist Masters Program from Simplilearn. 

I have been a Digital Marketing Intern at Testbook for the past four months. After that, I plan to become a full-time digital marketer and open my digital marketing agency.

The Challenge

After completing the basic course, which gave me an idea about the industry, I wanted to give direction to my career and decided to explore digital marketing in depth. I got interested in this field, but I had to have proper knowledge and certification to look for new job opportunities. Hence, I decided to upskill myself through Simplilearn’s Digital Marketing Specialist Masters program.

After a five-year-long break from my career, I completed the PGP Digital Marketing course from Simplilearn and re-entered the workforce as a Digital Marketing Intern with a 20% salary increment!

My Career Journey So Far

I took a break from my administrative career after having a child, and when I decided to return to work after five years, I realized that the job scenario had changed. Although I had an MBA, I never got an opportunity to work in the marketing field. After researching, I realized the power and growth of digital media and wanted to create an impact in this digital world and be the connection between companies and consumers. 

So from Simplilearn, I pursued the PGP in Digital Marketing course, and I restarted my career as a digital marketing intern at a reputed firm in New York.

The Challenge

I wanted to change my career path without spending too much time and money on my studies. So with Simplilearn, I got the perfect-paced course that was available on weekends, and the fee was also quite affordable. Therefore, after going through Simplilearn reviews, I decided to upskill myself and opted for Postgraduate Program in Digital Marketing in association with Purdue University from Simplilearn.

As documented by Dr Mohammad Baydon

I am an experienced pharmacist, but the identity with no recognition led me to worry about my future. As my interest in my profession decreased, I started craving new challenges, knowledge and exposure to remain competent. It encouraged me to leave my comfort zone and pursue new responsibilities and opportunities available in the world. 

The Journey 

I have been a pharmacist since 2008; however, dealing with the same challenges felt so frustrating that I became lazy and worried about the future. I wanted recognition among the public, and it demanded a blend of skills, hard work and talent. The constant urge to learn and receive accreditation made me take the plunge and avail the opportunity to learn the most current and promising skills.

The Challenge 

The stagnancy in my career frustrated me, decreased my interest and discouraged me from delivering my duty honestly. Although, finding a new passion with trending courses wasn’t easy. I wanted to excel and thus required quality platforms that impart education. Having tried multiple organizations, I was never satisfied with the quality of education they provided as they didn’t appear promising enough to help me tread on a new career domain path.

I completed my BE in Electronics and Telecommunications. Afterwards, I joined LetsVenture as a Business Operations manager. I always wanted to join the Digital Marketing team, and for this, I needed guidance from industry experts. Simplilearn learning helped me take the first step in changing my industry and becoming a Senior Marketing Manager.

The Journey

After graduation, I joined LetsVenture, located in Bangalore as the Business Operations manager. This is a tech company that connects business founders to investors that helped me hone my skills and expertise in managing clients and business operations. 

After having five years of experience in this field, I decided to make a switch to the digital marketing domain. For this, I planned on getting professional certification from Simplilearn. Further, I joined Qualitas Technology Pvt. Ltd as the Senior Marketing Manager. 

The Challenge

Like everyone, I wanted to enhance my career graph, and for this, it was essential to upgrade my skill sets. In my first job position, I learned a lot about handling clients and managing business operations to generate profit. However, this was not enough to reach my ambition of becoming a digital marketer. More importantly, to get a well-paying job position in a new domain, it was vital to have knowledge of every tool and how to work with it. 

For this, I started searching for online platforms and courses that offer hands-on experience in the form of industry-based assignments and projects.

I loved working as a software developer. However, I always felt that my corporate position was holding my growth prospects. Additionally, my interests kept encouraging me to learn more about digital marketing. For this, I enrolled for PGP in digital marketing with Purdue University from Simplilearn, which turned out to be one of my best professional decisions.

My Journey

In 2015 I moved from Sri Lanka to Dubai in search of better job opportunities. Here I got an offer from one of the leading UAE companies named Landmark Group. As I had prior experience in working with programming languages like web2, mobile, etc., I started working as a web developer. Here I also got the chance to understand the basics of digital marketing, which seemed interesting to me. Eventually, I decided to explore this sector through the best professional courses that were available to me.

My Challenges

As a software developer, I was earning good money, but I wanted to change my domain to digital marketing. The primary reason for this was the fact that digital marketing included everything that was relevant to my hobbies, which included photography, videography, and content creation.

For this, I started reading books and took online video tutorials to understand more about this sector. In Dec 2018, I decided to shift to Digital Marketing. As I had no experience in this domain, I needed academic qualifications from the best institutes.
