As documented by Sriram Sridharan.
As your career grows, you constantly have to keep adding to your skills or you can become obsolete. This was true for me too, as I was rising up the ranks in my job, I realized that I would have to keep adding to my skills to become better.
I completed my bachelor’s in production engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Trichy, followed by a master’s in industrial engineering from Texas A&M University. Previously I’ve worked for GE as a product safety engineer, and for Shell as a material data engineer.
I then got the opportunity to work for Hewlett Packard Enterprise as a team lead for the business intelligence team. While I was confident about my skills, I knew I should also look at project management training.
I was given more responsibilities at work. I had to work on a project management dashboard, work in collaboration with cross-functional teams, business intelligence (BI) tools, and at the same time, I had to manage a large team.
Training Makes All the Difference
Luckily I found Simplilearn’s PMP® Certification Course. I found Simplilearn using an online search. I felt the course was comprehensive, and it covered all the components of the PMP exam. The course had case studies, industry-based scenarios, hands-on projects, and self-paced and instructor-led classes.
