As documented by Swapnil Pal

My name is Swapnil Pal, and I am a systems engineer, and hold a Bachelor of Technology (B-tech) degree in electronics and telecommunications engineering. Prior to this position, I worked with India-based company, VOIS, as a senior quality assurance executive. The position was the result of a campus placement.

I decided to upskill because I wanted to change my career path from software tester to software developer. Since I was also curious about web development, I started learning on my own. Still, I knew that it wasn’t enough, so I began searching for online courses. I eventually discovered the Post Graduate Program (PGP) in Full Stack Web Development by CalTech, provided by Simplilearn. So, in 2021, I decided to upskill myself.

After three phases of the course (covering core Java, advanced Java, and spring framework) I was confident enough to switch my role from being a tester to a developer. In March 2022, I switched my job to TCS as a Java developer and now I am working there as a systems engineer. I switched my job with a 20 percent salary increase. Now that I’ve completed the course, I’m expecting some more in my cost to company.

A Program to Help You Grow Professionally and Personally

I enjoyed my experience with Simplilearn because completing the program provided me with great instruction and coursework, and there was also personal growth as I learned time and work management. Every class was conducted well and the instructors were also very helpful.

Simplilearn’s partnership with CalTech (CTME) is a flexible learning environment that allowed me to study and complete assignments on the weekend only (Saturday and Sunday) This was a perfect fit for me because I was able to work on weekdays and take classes on weekends.
