Yagnik Pandya from Cohort Aravali secured a pre-placement offer from BluePi within 24 weeks of program commencement. Let's hear what Yagnik has to say about his experience at AlmaBetter.
"Hello everyone! I am Yagnik Pandya. I did my graduation in Computer Science from RK University, Gujarat. After working as an operation analyst, I developed a great interest in Data Science. So, I decided to give a better edge to my analytical skills by engaging in a good Data Science course online. I was comparing various Data Science programs but AlmaBetter's unique model caught my eye.
AlmaBetter offers a comprehensive Data Science Program to students at zero upfront payment. Their Pay after Placement models eliminates the concept of student debt as their students pay only after securing a job with 6 LPA salary or more. Their job guarantee feature is backed up by their one-month long AlmaX Placement Drive.
I would say that my learning journey at AlmaBetter was quite remarkable. The live classes were so interactive that it made it easier for me to concentrate on the concepts. Thanks to their regular doubt-solving sessions, I was able to move to the next module only after completely understanding the concepts of previous modules. Regular assignments and feedback helped me in identifying my weak points so that I could work on them.
I found the one-on-one mentorship sessions to be really insightful. These weekly sessions made me confident about myself and gave me a chance to interact with industry experts. AlmaBetter also conducted AMA Sessions with accomplished Data Science professionals every Saturday. This helped me in clearing all the career-related doubts I had and gave me a broad idea of the Data Science Industry.
AlmaBetter believes in imparting practical knowledge to students and not just theoretical concepts. Thus, capstone projects are a major part of the curriculum. These projects helped me sharpen my people skills. I gained a lot of knowledge, not only from my instructors and mentors, but also from my teammates.
At AlmaBetter, we had sessions with Utter to work on our communication skills. Due to these sessions, I was able to present my answers to the interviewer in a more articulate manner. The AlmaX Placement Drive also consisted of resume building sessions and mock interviews. These activities prepared me for the interview process and helped me secure my current job.
I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the AlmaBetter team and wish them good luck. Their novel initiative helped me achieve my dream career. And to all those who want to join AlmaBetter, I want to say that their curriculum is so robust, it will definitely fetch you a job. But their efforts mean nothing unless you yourself put in efforts. Your efforts will not go unrewarded.
