Upskilling – The Future of Tech

We all have certain dreams and aspirations when it comes to our careers. We may not have had the specifics figured out right at the beginning, but we have a general idea of what we want to achieve and the kind of life we wish to lead. The thing is, the world we live in today is very different from what our parents and grandparents lived in and were accustomed to. The dependence on technology is steadily increasing and tech skills are useful in even non-tech industries. The advancements in technology ensure that we need to keep updating our skills with regard to the market requirements. With the growing competition, we simply cannot afford to be complacent anymore. Upskilling is very much a necessity in the present scenario. In India, Data Science and Emerging Technologies are two of the fastest-growing industries.

Swathy S was a Java Developer but she realized the need for upskilling and wanted to foray into the world of data. That’s when she came across Jigsaw Academy’s Full Stack Data Science Program which gives a structured approach to data, that even students with no data background can follow. She was able to successfully transition to a Data Science career post completion of the course. She credits the success of the program to the experienced faculty, course materials, case studies, and the placement support provided. The 3 capstone projects based on real-world problems that she undertook gave her the confidence to start working on Kaggle problems. This exposure made her realize that her interests lay in the field of Machine Learning. Student satisfaction is our priority and our students can attest to it. Here’s the complete review by Swathy.

Data has seen a boom in recent years. Organizations are recognizing the importance of data and it is expected to flourish even more in the future. With data being generated every second, there is a need to analyze that data and draw conclusions. That’s where data science professionals come in. There are expected to be 1.5 lakh new openings in 2020, an increase of 62% compared to 2019. There is a gaping skill gap with a dearth of qualified professionals. There are ample opportunities to foray into the world of data science and secure one’s future. Jigsaw Academy aims to bridge the existing skill-gap with its Full Stack Data Science Program; India’s first NASSCOM-validated course. Now is the time to prepare for the future. Upskill and stay ahead of the crowd!
