Post Graduate Program in Data Science

Here’s how Alvino Aji went from a fresh college graduate to landing a job at Uber. 
Why did you decide to learn Data Science?
I have completed my Computer Science Engineering in 2018 and I had plans to go for higher studies. But I thought it would be better to have some field and market experience before I join MS. So I decided to opt for Data Science and Engineering program as one of my cousins was already enrolled in. Since it was a full-time program I relocated to Bangalore.
What did you like the most about the program?
The faculty are really good here, I mean the interactive sessions with them were amazing. The sessions were not like monotonous classes, but there were lots of hands-on sessions that made it very interesting. The curriculum is very well designed and the boot camp model of training is excellent.
How did you land a job in Uber?
Uber had conducted an online test at our Bangalore campus. After clearing the test I had two technical rounds. I was tested majorly on Python, SQL, Machine learning and SAS during my interviews with Uber. Thanks to the guidance given here I grabbed this opportunity and joined in my dream company as a fresher.
How was the career support offered by Great Learning?
I had an opportunity to get interviewed by some of the top companies. Career support here is what that stands out and makes Great Learning better apart from other reasons. I had one-on-one career mentoring session with Mr Srijit Ghatak which was extremely enriching where he mentored me and gave me tips on improving my CV and interviews.
What is your advice to the aspirants?
Even if you fail in an interview, you still have a lot of things to learn from the experience of giving the interview. Keep improving on all the things that you think you are weak at and polishing those which are your strengths, that will help you in the long run and eventually crack many opportunities on your way.
