Ramya Data Science

We are defined by the choices we make. In the case of our DSE alumnus Ramya, the choice was clear. Read further to know why she considered the PGP-DSE program by Great Learning as the ideal choice.
Why did you choose this particular program?
I completed my graduation in electronics and communication engineering. After college, I took up a Python course out of my own interest. Later, I decided to take up a full-time data science program; one which would help me to learn data science from scratch. My mother works for Great Lakes and she advised me to take a look at the diverse courses offered by Great Learning. I realized that PGP-DSE is the perfect match for me. The PGP-DSE program is best suited for freshers who want to build a career in data science. I was certain about the quality of the course. I didn’t even consider any other institute and enrolled for the DSE program right away.
How was the program curriculum and how is it structured?
As a fresher, I knew very little about data science but at the end of the program, I was well-versed with all the industry-relevant tools and topics. It was the ideal and the best way to learn data science. All the concepts were taught during this program with hands-on training on topics like text mining, Hadoop, SQL etc. All the Faculty were really great and I really love the way this program is structured
What are your career aspirations?
I got into Saksoft, thanks to the career fair organised by Great Learning in Chennai. My resume was shortlisted by three companies- Monexo, Saksoft, and Merit. After a f2f interview, I got a call from Saksoft for a case study test at their office followed by a rapid-fire round. The data set that was given in the case study round was similar to the classroom project that we did. So, I could do it very well. Also, Mr Hariram, who is a BABI Alumnus had given general interview guidance after my interview session with Saksoft. I got this offer even before completing the program.
What kind of career guidance did you get from your mentor?
We were properly groomed for the interviews. I would like to thank Mr Shyam Muralidharan who took my mock interview. He was very patient. He gave a lot of tips on how to perform during the interviews and highlighted the areas of improvement as well. I couldn’t have performed well in my Saksoft interview without the mock interview experience. Even after getting the job I chose to take a career mentoring session and I booked my session with Mr Shyam. Career mentoring is a good initiative as it helps students to get guidance on choosing their career path.
Upksill with Great Learning’s PGP – Data Science and Engineering to master the domain.
