Getting Into Full Stack Development After Mechanical Engineering: My Career Journey

Getting Into Full Stack Development After Mechanical Engineering: My Career Journey

By - Meet Tandel, Board Infinity Alumni

In the 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering, I lost my interest in the field and started exploring. In the same year, I got interested in web development and since then, there has been no looking back!

1. My Early Career Journey

My name is Meet Tandel. I am from Gujarat. After finishing school, I joined Government Engineering College to study B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering. But, mechanical engineering couldn’t do wonders for me, so I decided to look for other career options. I explored various fields like marine engineering, data science, and full-stack development. But, my lack of interest in math made me drop the other two options and go for full-stack development.

Trying to learn full-stack development on my own, I was extremely drawn towards mobile and web development. I, however, felt that the course was a little hard to follow without any guidance, so I started a certification course with Board Infinity on full-stack development.

I thoroughly discussed the course and all of its aspects with the counselors at Board Infinity and felt comfortable going forward, so I quickly enrolled and began the course.

2. My Experience with Board Infinity

Learning with Board Infinity from the best coaches in the industry was a very good experience for me.  Coach Saurav Matre made me very proficient in both front-end and back-end development. Attending personalized classes and working on projects and continuous assessments through quizzes and assignments helped me grow a lot.

Board Infinity has a great role to play in the shaping of my full-stack developer career but none of it would have been possible without self-study and consistent hard work every day. I used to code for hours and review my work, especially the projects.

Through my journey, I learned that project-based learning is the most important part of any course as it helps you develop real-world knowledge. Working on projects helped me improve my skills and learn better.

3. My Placement Journey

Placements didn’t start with a bang as I had to face a couple of rejections but I knew that I just had to wait for my time. A few days later, eClerx arrived with the position of React Intern. They conducted an online test and a 30-minute interview. After a week, I got a call from them confirming my job.

This has been one of the happiest experiences for me as I had set out on a completely unknown career field but with Board Infinity’s help and self-discipline, I had finally realized my career dream.

I am really happy with the job that I have right now. In the future, I would like to work in front-end development and my dream company is Microsoft.
