Online Training Can Help Kick-Start Your Career. Pixabay

“I had no prior knowledge of website development but had always been curious to learn how a website worked. So, I researched online and found an online training which taught about website development. Its content seemed interesting and so I enrolled for it. The quizzes and coding challenges along the way made this learning journey quite interesting. I ended up learning much more than I had expected.

Immediately after I completed the training, I began my search for relevant internships because I was eager to work on live projects. I applied to an internship with a startup and shared the link to the e- commerce website I had built as a part of the training in my application and within a week, I received an email stating that I had been shortlisted. I was then given 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 got hired after an interview. Now, I am working as a front-end developer with them. 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.”

Every year, lakhs of students graduate but most them are not able to get a job or an internship. It might be due to lack of relevant skills or knowledge about the subject. Online training can help bridge that gap at an affordable price and make you stand out from the rest.
To help you understand how online training can make the difference, we have listed the perks it offers below.

1. In-depth knowledge:
Online training is designed for the masses hence, the training is broken down into several segments and covers the basics quite well. The entire training will have tests and assignments to provide you with an in-depth knowledge. At times, your syllabus might not be updated with latest
developments in your field of study but online trainings help you learn the latest technologies. Also, your learnings will be put to the final test by completing the project at the end of the training.

2. Live experience:
Online training would give you an opportunity to test all that you have learned into live situations; academically and professionally. It will help instil confidence in you to change your approach as per the objective rather than the conventional approach. The projects which you do as a part of the online training will help you apply the theories on to real-life situations. For instance, you could make a new website for your college or an exam-bank app for your batchmates as a part of your project. You will get hands-down experience through these projects.

3. Opportunity to explore:
School or college is a difficult stage for everyone. Either we are not sure about which field to pursue graduation in or with time lose interest in. Online training can help solve that problem. The duration of the training range from 4-6 weeks and it will help you understand where your interest lies. Before you start looking for opportunities to work, it is essential to establish if you are interested in your field of study and have a good knowledge of the subjects.

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday asked the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) to prevent dumping of toxic wastes in India.

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday asked the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) to prevent dumping of toxic wastes in India. Speaking at an event to celebrate DRI's 64th foundation day, Sitharaman lauded DRI's compact strength of about 800 officers for their relentless efforts despite the imminent risks. The Finance Minister stated that the officers may be keeping a low profile, but they are acting like the frontline defence forces, doing spectacular work in safeguarding the economic frontiers of the country. "The recent smuggling attempts of huge quantities of narcotics, gold, red sanders, ivory, cigarettes etc. unearthed by DRI were appreciated by the Finance Minister," the Ministry of Finance said in a statement.

"Sitharaman said that the message through such enforcement actions should be such that these acts of brazen attempts at smuggling are nipped in the bud," the statement added. The Finance Minister also said that better coordination among the law enforcement and intelligence gathering agencies and sharing of actionable intelligence are the way forward in protecting the frontiers of the country more efficiently. "Sitharaman also asked the DRI to focus on interdicting dual use technology items as well as preventing the dumping of toxic wastes in our country," the statement said. (IANS/ MBI)

Tech giant Amazon has expanded the sound detection capabilities of Alexa along with more features.

Tech giant Amazon has expanded the sound detection capabilities of Alexa along with more features. Alexa can now identify the sounds of running water and appliances beeping, reports Android Central. This means users can set up an Alexa routine to notify themselves when the washer beeps to indicate that laundry is finished, the report said.

When Alexa detects that the faucet has been left open, it will send users a notification as well so they can take appropriate action, it added. Amazon previously said at its event in September that it would add the ability to programme Alexa to recognise custom sounds, but that feature has yet to arrive. Having said that, the two new sound detection capabilities not only help users save energy, but they also make it easier to avoid paying for unnecessary charges on your home utilities, the report said.

The retail giant has also announced ultrasound motion detection, which will allow you to set up "Occupancy Routines" on additional Echo devices. This feature allows your smart speaker to detect nearby motion and initiate a routine, such as turning on the lights. It is compatible with many of the best Alexa speakers including the 4th-gen Echo, Echo Dot and Echo Dot with Clock. (IANS/ MBI)
