“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.

Tourism is a major revenue earner for impoverished Nepal, home to eight of the world’s 14 peaks over 8,000 meters (26,000 feet).

Fears for the industry rose after a devastating earthquake in 2015 that killed nearly 9,000 people and destroyed many of the country’s heritage sites.
