Hi, my name is Sampath Patil. I completed my BE (Computer Science Engineering) from SJB Institute of Technology, Bangalore in 2019. During my 6th semester of engineering I started searching for a place to learn Python. One evening I received a call from Introtallent (Indiranagar branch) and I thought of attending a demo class. Though it was not an easy task to travel all the way from Kengari to Indiranagar (which is about 25 kms of distance), but I was passionate about learning python so got a motivation to travel.
When I attended the demo class, I liked it as teaching methodology was very simple and effective. I took admission in python course in next couple of days. This course helped me doing well in my python exam.
I had attended a seminar on Analytics, Data Science & Machine Learning at my college and after that I spent good amount of time on research to understand the work, opportunities, complexities etc. So I was very clear that I wanted to learn Data Science and Machine Learning after completing my engineering.
One day, after my python class I met one of the learner who was an experienced professional from another batch and got placed in Data Science. He had completed Data Science Plus (DS Plus) program. So I asked my mentor about the course and how it would help me. Upon his recommendation I continued my course and upgraded to DS Plus program during my 7th and 8th semester. I was allowed to take break during my exams and after finishing my 8th semester final exams I resumed my classes.
I was the first student at Introtallent who joined Data Science Plus program as a fresher. Before this the institute never took a fresh engineering student for this program. They used to have intake only for experienced professionals.
The interview preparation sessions were just awesome. It was a 360 degree preparation, right from how to give introduction, how to answer questions, presentations, mock tests, mock interview, post interview assessment, IPWS (Interview Preparation Workshops) etc.
And yes, I got a job offer before my engineering final result was announced. Thanks to my mentors and entire team of Introtallent.
What I liked the most?
I enjoyed working on all my projects during my course but my favorites are Tableau BI, Python, Machine Learning, and Excel.
Secret of my success
Following what mentors said is the key to my success, I believe. Also the format of preparation is brilliant. Some of the other key things are:
- not missing any session
- being regular
- completing all Projects and Research work on time. Not missing any deadlines kept me motivated. Sometimes it was very tiring though, but it was worth working hard.
- Presentation of projects
- Working on feedback from mentors
- Support and guidance from Introtallent
