As documented by Rimaz Rauf
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.
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.
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.
