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.

You wanted to learn something new at the convenience of your home. After thorough research, you got yourself enrolled in an online training. You had everything planned out, but the outcome isn’t what you had in mind. To help you avoid some of the common mistakes that students make and yield the best possible outcome from the training, we have listed few things you could do.

1. Timetable:

The biggest perk online training has to offer is the flexibility. You can pursue it at your own
convenience, but it is essential to realise that it should be used as an advantage rather than a disadvantage.  Students after enrolling start procrastinating and end up not finishing the training. So, to avoid that, it essential to break down each module and make a timeline for respective modules on the basis of the content. Apart from making it a seamless journey, it would also help you in realising the progress made and the journey you are yet to cover.

2. Practice:

The knowledge that you gain can only be effective only if you practice. So, to ensure that
you gain an in-depth knowledge about the subject, it is quintessential to practise all that you have learned and thus put to the test your abilities and skills attained by completing the test and assignments on time. You could even browse the internet for more study material or make a problem statement of your own that you can solve using the skills attained.

3. Research and seek answers:

While learning, it is normal to have doubts, but it is equally important that you seek
answers for things you didn’t quite understand. A thorough research about the and jot every doubt you have and then reach out to support or the subject matter expert for the answers. The more unresolved doubts you have, the less you will learn. So, remember, you are an anonymous user to the platform so your doubts as frivolous they may be, can be asked without hesitation.

4. Practical applications:

So, you have learned all that you wanted to but how to put them to the test? Well, that is
where practical applications come. The new perspective that you gained from the learnings
should be put to the test by figuring out better ways of evaluating a problem. To look for
problems or ideas that could be solved using the application of the training. The knowledge
gained from the online training will help put you a step ahead of your peers and a certificate at the successful completion of the training will help validate that as well.

Initially, things might be a little difficult to manage but remember that you have already taken the hardest step – realizing the need to upskill yourself and enrolling in a training.  During the training, if you ever start to jitter, remember why you joined the training and what you wish to gain because once you have a clear sight of the goal, there isn’t much that would deter you from your path.
