My journey into Data Science 

Why Data Science?

I got a project that was in Big Data at my then-current company Persistent. Though I had theoretical knowledge about Data Science, I realized that there was tremendous scope in the industry. And, if I have to stay ahead in the industry, I need to have in-depth hands-on knowledge. That’s when I decided to take it up seriously through professional courses.

Why Dimensionless?

I was sure I did not want to compromise on my working hours or disturb my schedule and needed a course that could provide real value through its teaching. After checking the pricing of multiple courses on Simplilearn, UpGrad, CourseEra etc. I decided to attend a demo session at Dimensionless because the course was priced reasonably.

I liked the way they were teaching, it was interactive as well as easy to understand. On a personal call, they also gave me very insightful guidance on my transition path in the industry. And, that’s how I was sure about Dimensionless.

How was your Experience with Dimensionless?

Very interactive classes with personalized attention. That’s what I liked most about the teachers. They did not move ahead until and unless everyone had understood the lesson. It felt like we were learning in a classroom even though it was online. All the students felt very comfortable in asking doubts, and the doubts were resolved there and then. So we got to learn from other people’s doubts too.

The course content and material was good too. The syllabus covered all the topics in-depth.

Career Transition to Data Science

I was assigned to a Big Data project at my previous company. Once I learnt Data Science, I confidently started applying to proper Data Science profiles. I also got Placement Assistance here. In a personal session, I got my resume improvised, and career mentoring. I even got placed at one company via Dimensionless Techademy’s Placement Support.

I think being sincere and practising hands-on will help professionals get better jobs quickly, which is a huge advantage Dimensionless gives.  

Everyone who aspires to be a Data Scientist should concentrate more on hands-on knowledge, once you master it dedicatedly, the rest will come on its own.

Jasmeet Singh: In-depth Teaching Methods made Smooth Career Transition from Java Developer to Data Scientist Possible

Journey into Data Science:

I was a Java Developer with Verizon back in 2015. Data Science industry had just started booming but I wasn’t sure if a transition was possible after over 2 years in one field. Getting introduced to Dimensionless Techademy changed my view about career transition completely. They helped me understand the possible career paths in my domain. Knowing the scope and possibility of transition gave me the confidence to choose Data Science.

After attending the demo session, it was a fairly simple choice to go with Dimensionless when compared to other courses available. I found their teaching method very practical and interactive. They were very straight-forward and honest since the beginning.

With their teaching, I was able to quickly grasp concepts and implement them in projects. Teachers were always available for doubt-solving throughout the day. I dedicatedly attended the live virtual classes wherever I was. In less than 6 months, I was ready to enter the world of Data Science and there was no looking back.

After the course, I was able to transition to a Data Science role within the company itself. I was promoted to the role of Analyst – System Dev with R programming, Machine Learning, Predictive modeling, Hadoop, and SQL. After gaining some experience in this role, I moved to Canada knowing that there is a huge requirement of Data Scientists here.

Considering the way of teaching, I believe if you are dedicated enough, even with no experience or knowledge of Data Science, you will find it very easy to transition.
