After 3 very hectic rounds of interviews at one of the reputed KPO, they just offered me 3.4 lakh per annum. Which was only 20K more than my current package and I was in no mood to accept the offer. However, I was not sure why these happened and why were they not considering my 5 years experience in US mortgage.
I was really frustrated and need an answer from the HR. I went into HR cabin and asked for the relevant justification for the package offered to me.
She calmly asked me to sit and offered water to me.
She then replied “Rakshit, we are looking for some added advantage to the job profile. I appreciate your experience; however, only after few days training we will be able to get the same work done from a fresher to whom we are only offering 1.8 Lakh per annum”
She then added, “sooner or later we will be able to achieve the same level of expertise and skills which you hold on this profile and cost to the company will be much less.”
I got her point completely and now it’s time to add some specialization to my current role. However, I was not sure what to do and from where do I start again.
While looking for various courses, I saw an ad from DataTrained on facebook and I contacted them straight away and inquired about their Data Science online course. Their counselor took me through the complete journey of what they offer and what is data science all about.
After continuous conversation for a few weeks, I was pretty sure about the course and now I knew where I need to invest my money and hard work.
