My Early Career Background
My high school years were spent in Hyderabad but I'm originally from Telangana. I went to a rural school that required us to walk 3 km to get to school every day. After finishing school, I scored 190 in my JEE exam and got admitted to NIT Durgapur in West Bengal for a B.Tech degree in Chemical Engineering.
Despite the cultural shock of being a South Indian studying in a college in West Bengal with a completely different culture, I enjoyed college life! There was a language barrier, and food culture differences, but we finally got a South Indian mess controller. As a college student, I've thoroughly enjoyed myself. If only we could all turn back the clock to our college days!
When I first attended college, I was a studious student, but the chemical engineering program had made me realize that my interest was more in software engineering. Creating websites was something I was deeply interested in. My friend was the inspiration for this career change around that time. Through online platforms, he was able to learn Python and get a job at HSBC. My inspiration from him led me to look for online courses on web development that I could take. That's when I came across Board Infinity and enrolled in the Full Stack Development Course.
Learning Experience at Board Infinity
My Placement Journey
The course was well-structured and I got a placement through the college placement cell at Piramal Foundation in Hyderabad but unfortunately, it got canceled due to the lockdown in 2020. After which, I applied for Heterolabs in Hyderabad and got the job as the production engineer there but I had to let go of it in 2-3 weeks because of the health problems I was facing due to continuous exposure to chemicals.
In January, I applied for the Ethical Hacking role in Tech Mahindra as their Technical Support to support my course at Board Infinity. I have learned a lot here and I am confident about my placements.
I am looking forward to cracking Amazon interviews for the Full-Stack Developer role.
