This is where the success story of Angelina Daisy finds its relevance; she relaunched her career after a whopping 16-year break and currently works as an Associate Software Engineer at Motivity Labs. Read her success story here.  

"Launching my career with a 16-year career gap was definitely not easy; being a mother, I had a whole different set of priorities. But OdinSchool’s Data Science Bootcamp has helped many women like me get their careers up and running again."

In 2006, Angelina graduated from Pydah College of Engineering and Technology with a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE). Soon after her graduation, she joined JustDial where she worked for 11 months. She got married during her stint at JustDial. This was when she decided to take a career break to focus on her family life. 

The attempt to stay relevant

Even though her career remained dormant for 16 years, she knew the need to keep up with the industry. While freelancing as a content writer, she took up several certification courses to upgrade her skill set. But, her priorities shifted after she became a mother. 

"To relaunch my career, I took up several online courses and acquired several certifications, but without proper guidance, those courses were futile in helping me land a job. They don’t tell you how to re-enter the workforce after a long break”, she recalls while talking about her decision to restart her career. 

"Things got right soon after joining OdinSchool; they started from scratch, and that is exactly what I needed. After grasping at straws for so long, I finally felt I was on the right track,” she says.
