Wanting to upskill in digital marketing, I was looking for affordable courses when I came across Mastering SEO by Indic AI and Simplilearn. Upon completion of the program, I was able to upskill and get a promotion with a 25% salary increment.
My Career Journey So Far
I got polio in my right leg at a young age, so I had to drop out of school. But my mother was determined to get me educated and helped me return to formal education. Today, I am a B. Com graduate. I completed my graduation back in 2003. I started off as a lab assistant. Since then, I have done some small jobs like Data Entry and worked in call centers as a chat support executive.
In 2014, I joined WSI ALM as a link-building executive and have been working there ever since. After seven years, I got promoted to SEO Accounts Executive at my company after taking the Mastering SEO – Indic AI and Simplilearn course.
I was already working in the digital marketing domain. But after working there for a while, I wanted to increase my knowledge in the field to perform better at my job, so I decided to upskill myself. I thought that a professional certification in the same would be extremely beneficial for me to advance my career.
Affordability was a huge concern, and I only came across courses that were expensive. I was looking for something that I could afford. That was when I heard about Simplilearn’s collaboration with Indic AI which aimed to provide premium professional courses at discounted prices for differently-abled students.
The Simplilearn Solution
I took the opportunity and joined the Mastering SEO – Indic AI course. Indic AI sponsored the program. I had to pay only INR 5,000; the rest was paid for.
It was easy to take the course on my computer. I have recordings of all the lectures that were given during the course. I did not face any obstacles. The batch was conducted in the morning, which was helpful since I work at night as my company is based in Canada.
