Journey from
Mechanical Engineer
to Data Science


Data Science Consultant - Supply Chain Management Johnson & Johnson


About me:

Hello, my name is Vikram, and I've had a roller coaster career that has so far ended pleasantly. I'm from Pune, and like most individuals who choose science in 11th and 12th grade, I went on to study engineering. I majored in mechanical engineering at the time, which led to a position at Schaeffler India Limited Pune. However, I discovered that it was not what I really wanted to do, and that changing my professional path could be helpful to my future job.

My best buddy, who worked in the same profession as me, introduced me to Data Science. He assured me that this field was thriving and that there were plenty of job prospects. I did my own research and discovered that the area required a wide range of skills, all of which I could gain through a certification. Because Business Toys was a well-known company, some of my friends recommended it to me, and I chose to take it.

My Experience with Business Toys

I enrolled in Business Toys' Data Science Course and discovered that this field had a lot to offer! The educators here are industry specialists who will teach you everything from the fundamentals to advanced techniques. Vaibhav, who was more than a mentor to me, deserves special attention. He not only provided good instruction, but he also assisted me in determining what path in the field of Data Science was ideal for me. Manikanta, Omkar sir, and Vaishali ma'am were also quite helpful.

At Business Toys, the curriculum is excellent. It allows you to assess your learning and revisit what has been taught through regular courses and doubt clearing sessions at the end of each module. This style of coaching is quite beneficial in terms of remembering material and honing abilities.

For each subject, we were even given realistic industrial projects with real-time data, which allowed me to obtain hands-on experience in the field of Data Science.

My placement journey

Apart from that, self-study can help you transition into a new career. I've set aside 4-6 hours each day to practise at least 25-30 SQL and Python questions. You must master these two skills if you want to pursue a career in Data Science. So I put in a lot of effort to get to where I am now. I joined on various platforms to put what I'd learned into practise, which strengthened my confidence every day.

Finally, I am overjoyed to inform you that I have been hired as a Supply Chain Planning Analyst at Johnson & Johnson with a 50% hike over my previous CTC. I've gotten through three to four interviews, and I'd like to thank Business Toys for that.

My recruiters there did a long and arduous interview in which they asked me moderate to intermediate level SQL and Python questions, and I was able to answer nearly all of them to secure the position. Now, I'm looking forward to a bright future. In the big picture, I'm more interested in innovations than treks.

Anyone planning to shift from one career to a completely different career, such as myself, should keep in mind that all it needs is patience and practise. Once you've made up your mind, don't second-guess yourself. You will succeed if you give it time.
