Before we delve any further, we wanted to share the stories of 3 students and their tryst with online training.
Kapil Arora, a student of Government Engineering College, RTU shares why he opted for an online training and how it was a stepping stone to him becoming an entrepreneur.
“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.”
Abhishek Bhattacharya is pursuing B.Tech from Maharaja Surajmal Institute of Technology, this is how an online training helped him get a full-time job.

“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.
