I was one of those guys who were always interested in coding and learning new things, but I failed to secure a Computer Science seat in a good college. So, I ended up doing Mechanical Engineering in an attempt to at least stay close to engineering as a stream, and somehow graduated with 62%.
I then started my professional career with Asian Paints. I was employed as a Regional Service Officer at Asian Paints Ltd from Oct’2011 to Apr’2015. My responsibilities included looking after Sales and Service Operations for all of Bangalore. After that, I joined SKK PTE LTD as a Senior Sales and Marketing Executive in Apr’2015 (to June’2016) and I was looking after Sales and Marketing Activities for South India region.
I pretty much resented my second job for I felt I had made a move that could potentially ruin my career. I really wanted something that would let me work peacefully instead of always having to look at sales targets, worrying about what it will be at the end of the month.
After a few months, I felt the urge to move to an IT Job and I started learning Java in my free time. However that I felt wasn’t my cup of tea and I needed something more meaningful. I spoke to friends who told me that analytics was the career for the future and I researched on it.
