I began my career as a mechanical engineer. A native of Mumbai, I graduated from GV Acharya College in 2018 with a degree in mechanical engineering. From there, I immediately found a position in a mechanical company in the design and production line. The company was in a small industry with few growth opportunities, and my role required that I work on-site and interact with work crews on the site. It didn’t take long for me to realize that the position was not a good fit for me. After three months, I decided to leave that job and started teaching as a physics professor.
During my time teaching physics, I rediscovered my big craze for web development, data science, AI, and machine learning, which I had since my college days. But being a mechanical engineer, it was really difficult for me to get a competitive job in the market. To help break into the field, I took a data science course at an Institute in Mumbai. But the day I completed it, the entire country was in lockdown due to Covid.
Being a fresher in the tech field along with having a mechanical background made it really difficult for me to switch careers in the competitive job market. I decided to take on freelance projects, but that didn’t work for me because I knew this was not the right time and path for actually learning the technology. After all, there is a lot to know about programming, front end, and back end.
While I was searching for courses to help me change my career path, I found Simplilearn’s Full Stack Java Developer course with a job guarantee program. I instantly enrolled in the course. There were many options for me to choose from, but when you upskill, you invest a lot of time and money. I chose Simplilearn because I’ve been following them for the past two years. It’s already renowned, and it has a brand that you can trust. Also, the course delivery format and job guarantee program made Simplilearn’s Full Stack Java Developer program stand out from the crowd.
Soon after completing the course, I cleared many interviews and decided to join Novatech as a software developer. Not only have I successfully transitioned into a field I enjoy, but I’ve also increased my salary by 107 percent.
