Roadmap From IIT Graduate to Software Developer
Jay Sardar, a graduate of Biotechnology from IIT Guwahati augmented his career in software development with just 4 months of training. His story manifests that hard work and the right guidance can do wonders.
The journey of a self-taught programmer is tedious and comes with a lot of challenges. He was already paying hefty fees in his college to be a Biotech Graduate and couldn’t afford to pay another institute without getting a job. Moreover, self-study can become extremely confusing and directionless without the right guidance.
In his words, “I thought I needed guidance. Because the self-study was slow and I often lacked the motivation to study.”
Jay had some serious lags in the field as he was Biotech Graduate that restricted his opportunities to score a good placement. He was distraught. However, one day, Jay came across FunctionUp Placement Coding Bootcamp, which changed this graduate’s learning curve drastically. FunctionUp’s intense program, not just has the right guidance and curriculum but also brings the right discipline in learning, which helped Jay excel in programming.
During Jay’s 4 months of training, he interacted with top coders from across the country working in companies such as Microsoft, MongoDB, Samsung, Flipkart, Paytm, and coders hailing from institutes such as IIT and NIT. Live Q&A sessions, regular feedback sessions, and hands-on experience on industry-grade projects aided Jay to learn and excel in Backend Engineering skills that he hadn’t learned in his 4 years of college. This resulted in him bagging a higher package than all his batchmates at IIT Guwahati.
“If I hadn’t joined FunctionUp, I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I learned not just Tech but important life lessons. Interview preparation highlighted my mistakes in my career and mental attitude.” – Jay.
FunctionUp facilitated Jay with first-hand experience on advanced tech projects that helped him bag a ₹24 LPA at Citymall.
