“I was always intrigued by how a website functions and wanted to learn how to develop one but had no prior knowledge or experience in web development. I did some research and enrolled in a Web Development online training. It was a 6-week long online training which was divided into 4 modules – HTML & CSS, Bootstrap, MySQL, and PHP. The training started with frontend technologies wherein I learned to develop a webpage using HTML tags and to design and style it using CSS. The first and second modules introduced me to the working of various tags, the styling of pages, and the concept of responsiveness. The next two modules taught me the nuts and bolts of the backend. I learned different storage techniques, types of databases, MySQL queries, DML commands, and various types of keys and their uses. Lastly, I learned server-side scripting language and MySQLi. Most of the queries I had during this training were solved via Q/A forum but if I ever had a doubt, the teaching assistant was there to help. The quizzes and coding challenges made this journey quite interesting and the solutions to all the assignments were helpful. In those 6 weeks, I learned much more than I had expected.

Just after the training completed, I began my search for relevant internships with an eagerness to work on live projects. I applied to an internship along with the link to the e-commerce website I had built as a part of the training in my application and within a week or so, I received an email stating that I had been shortlisted. Going forward with the selection procedure, they gave me a task wherein I had to design a homepage for their website with a header followed by a photo carousel, services, and other details. I put everything I had learned during the training to use and submitted my entry. I was shortlisted for the telephonic interview! In the interview, the recruiter asked me about web development and I answered with ease, after which I was hired as a front-end developer. My responsibilities include developing various blogs and websites for the organisation and testing them for speed and performance. I also work on their SEO plans, meta tags, and WordPress plugins. “

This is the story of Sanya Singh, a student of Northern India Engineering College and how an online training helped her get an internship. Despite not having completed formal education in the field of web development, the training equipped Sanya in getting employed.

To help you understand how an online training can make the difference, let us first discuss what is online training? Unlike the conventional learning in the classrooms, online training makes the content available for students digitally. Students can learn online, anywhere and anytime. Instead of physical copies of books, e-learning uses visual content and gamification.

While hiring, employers seek relevant set of skills which can easily be gained through learning. The test and assignments along the duration of the training will provide you with knowledge and experience that will instil confidence in you.

Every year 60 Lac students graduate but only 8-10% get hired and the reason for it is – skill gap. So, to help increase your chances of getting a job/internship focus on getting the skills because a degree won’t assure a job, but relevant skills will make the difference!

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
