Balancing Act: Education and Career

While pursuing her MCA, Drishti started her professional career at Tech Mahindra as an associate customer support engineer. Working on various Google projects, her role focused primarily on backend processes. 

Juggling her studies and job was challenging, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Drishti viewed this period as an opportunity rather than a setback. She leveraged work-from-home options, virtual meetings, and online resources to manage her time effectively.

"Time management and prioritizing tasks were crucial," she recalls. "Dedication to my goals kept me going."

The Turning Point in Drishti's Career

Drishti’s quest for a clear learning path led her to YouTube, but the scattered information left her more confused than enlightened. She looked for the best course for data science, and it was then that she discovered OdinSchool.

"OdinSchool had everything I was looking for - the perfect fee structure, comprehensive curriculum, and robust job assistance," Drishti explains.

Joining OdinSchool's Data Science Course marked a significant turning point in her career. The course not only covered practical aspects of data science but also included soft skills training and resume-building classes. "The capstone projects were a game-changer," Drishti notes. "They strengthened my portfolio and prepared me for real-world challenges."

From Repetition to Innovation

Drishti’s previous role at Tech Mahindra involved repetitive tasks that left her craving for more stimulating work. Despite her efforts, salary hikes were minimal, leading to frustration.

However, her determination paid off when she completed the data science course at OdinSchool. On May 2nd, she joined Swiggy as a data scientist, receiving almost a 100% salary hike!
