“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.”
This is what Sanya Singh, a student of Northern India Engineering College, had to say about her tryst with online training how it helped her embark a professional career.

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.

I had an idea for a startup but I couldn’t implement it because I wasn’t familiar with web design. I thought of hiring a web developer, but it wasn’t economical for me, being a student. So, I decided to learn web development myself. The next dilemma was how to learn it. I browsed the internet and after thorough research enrolled in an online training. Once the training began, I was reassured that the quality and learnability of the training modules couldn’t get any better.

After the successful completion of my training and having gained enough knowledge and experienced, I went live with my own startup, Indian Mistry”

Shivam Arora, a student of Allenhouse Business School, U.P couldn’t get an internship, this is how an online training helped him get multiple internships.

“When I was in my 2nd year of BBA, I went to an internship fair at DTU, Delhi. I remember how difficult it was for me to score an internship. I created my resume and started applying for internships. However, I didn’t get selected for an internship, maybe because I didn’t have the right skills. The rejections left me disappointed, and I stopped applying further. Then, I came to know about online training. I enrolled myself in 3 trainings – Advance Excel, Business Communication Skills, and Digital Marketing.

After the successful completion of the trainings, I reworded my resume and added these skills to it. I began applying to internships once again; this time I got selected for 4 out of the 6 internships I had applied to. My dashboard that earlier showed ‘Not selected’ now showed ‘Hired’ or ‘In Touch’. Till date, I have successfully completed 4 internships and am pursuing 2 internships currently.”

I had always been motivated to learn newer technological concepts and make relevant use of them, but I wasn’t familiar with any useful tutorials or trainings. After surfing the internet rigorously, I found a training on Data Analytics. I began my training with the excitement of building a project just after 4 weeks. The content was exquisite and perfect for a beginner with no or little knowledge of analytics. 
The best part of taking up this training was that it gave me an edge during my job application. It was a group interview and I had to stand out from my peers to get the job. The interviewer asked me why I wanted to work in IT despite being an electronics graduate. I told them that IT attracted me and that I had even built an analytics project, which was a core computer science project. I was asked to explain the project, and I did. The interviewers were satisfied and extended me a job offer.”

Kapil, Shivam and Abhishek realized that they weren’t skilled to get an internship or a job. This made them enrol for an online training and their life changed for better.
