After completing the course, I started picking up small tasks related to cloud computing within my company and gained some confidence and experience through this. This is when I realised I can enter the field of cloud and flip my career. I went through all the assignments and the course videos again, and I got a big break at Mastercard.

The course curriculum was structured in such a way that they can understand the concepts from the basics to the topics that will help them enter the market. So I would say that it is structured well.
How was the career support?
It was quite good. I was working for several hours during my job at the time, and if I was ever frustrated, I would approach GL. They always pushed me to continue the course and not quit. Along with professional support, they provided me with emotional support as well. They were keen to help me resolve my queries.
