“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.

“At Masai, our students are given the experience of working in a corporate set up along with mastering their coding skills for 10-12 hours a day.”

Open to anybody seeking training in coding, learners are enrolled for free and are allowed to pay the course fee at a later date, post bagging a suitable job.

As part of the admission, students are required to sign an income-share agreement with the school.

After securing a job with a salary package of 6 lakh per annum or more, students would have to pay 15 per cent of their income to Masai School for the first three years of employment that amounts to a total of Rs 3 lakh.

If a student gets appointed at a package of less than Rs 6 Lakh, they would not have to pay anything right away, said the school.

Shukla said that since organisations today give more priority to skill-set rather than educational background, the Masai Schol is intended to fill the wide skill gap that exists in the country when it comes to coding. (IANS)
