Data Science jobs are on the rise. Upskilling in this domain can help you immensely as recruiters today are looking to hire individuals with data science skills. Read more about Ankit’s journey with Great Learning’s PGP Data Science and Engineering Course in his own words.
It has been an amazing journey with Great Learning. They have successfully transformed a mechanical engineer to a data scientist in just five months.
I was scared before joining the course as I had around 2.5 years of career gap, and I was from a mechanical engineering background. I thought that this would create some problems in getting me the job. But as the course started, I got comfortable with the course content and teachers. The content is designed in such a way that a person with no prior knowledge of programming can comfortably do it. The daily assignments and mini-projects of each topic helped me to make a strong grip on that topic. All the faculty have in-depth knowledge of theory as well as tools/software.
Our program manager Jagmeet Ma’am was very helpful for any concerns in between the course. The main advantage of this course is that it is a full-time classroom program. So you can clear your doubts from the teachers right away as well as you can take the help of your classmates.
With God’s grace, I got placed with two companies even before the completion of the course (Capgemini and EXL). Career gap didn’t make any hindrance as I had good technical skills. I want to thank Vikalp Sir, Mishthy Ma’am, and Ankita Ma’am who guided me to make the right decision in choosing the company and they also helped me to negotiate the salary with the companies.
Finally, I am thankful to all my teachers, mentors, and the whole Great Learning team for their guidance throughout the course.
