Data Science is a field that is constantly evolving and growing. Read about Anandh’s journey with Great Learning’s PGP Data Science and Business Analytics Course in his own words.
I am a graduate in Bachelor of Civil engineering 2016; post which I completed PGP DSBA with Great learning 2020.
I was working as a Customer support representative with Groupon services Chennai.
Amazon Data gave me thought to get into a career involving data, AI or machine learning. As I saw this field booming I searched for a course that I could do along with the job.
I was actively applying through different platforms when I was almost 70% done with the course. I honestly did not get many offers initially as I had a different background; however this company was my first offer and there were 3 rounds, involving technical and HR manager rounds.
I think the program is in such a way that boosts your confidence to achieve what you are looking for. Also I think constant support from my mentor (Mr Jainesh Garg) helped me a lot in this process, involving resume preparations and interview ideas.
I am excited about what the future holds for me, however for now I am looking forward to gaining more knowledge in this field as I am a complete fresher to data science.
Data science might seem to be a very intimidating and challenging field which can easily be overcome by understanding and applying the basic concepts and methodologies that are taught. Trust in yourself as you have taken this step already. Definitely need to be the hardest working person in the room. Streamline the industry you wish to pursue on and focus particularly in it, the rest will happen automatically.
