The need to find higher-paying opportunities led me to pursue Simplilearn’s Full Stack Java Developer Job Guarantee Program, and I landed a new job with a 50% salary hike.
My Career Journey So Far
I am a Mechanical Engineering Graduate from Gujarat Technological University. I also have a diploma in Advanced Computing. After completing my studies, I worked as an intern with Sattvam Soft, after which I joined LogicBuzz Infotech as a Back-end Developer last year.
Since I wanted to be a software developer, I decided to upskill via Simplilearn. I am currently working as an Associate Software Engineer with Galaxy Weblinks Inc.
While working as a back-end developer, I started searching for more professional opportunities and a higher-paying job. That is when I realized that software development is a field that has immense opportunities and it pays well.
So, I started applying to various companies, but I quickly understood that I lacked certain skills needed to be a software developer. Since my education was in mechanical engineering, I knew very little about software development. That’s when I decided to upskill myself, and I began my research on the internet.
The Simplilearn Solution
I was looking for a platform that would help me learn the basics of Java and other programming languages. I wanted to learn everything from scratch. I came across Simplilearn’s Full Stack Java Developer Program, and I really liked the curriculum. I also saw that the program comes with a job guarantee. So, I decided to take this course.
I am so lucky to have joined the program. I really liked the flexibility of the schedule as it didn’t hamper my job. I could learn while working full-time. The classes were on weekends and in the evenings, so it was really helpful.
