Despite her background in SQL, and work in financial and supply chain domains, Ragavi faced challenges expanding her expertise. Recognizing the need for a more structured and transparent learning experience, Ragavi opted for SkilloVilla. She found the teaching approach at SkilloVilla easy to grasp because it starts with the basics and covers all industry-relevant language, requiring no prior knowledge.

Structured Guidance at SkilloVilla

Ragavi was particularly impressed with SkilloVilla’s well-structured curriculum. The clarity she got in her learning journey came through the interactive weekend classes. As a working professional, her schedule was tight, so she studied at night.

“If any doubt arises, I shared it with the curriculum team and got a response within 24 hours,” Ragavi noted, highlighting the platform’s excellent support system.

Effective Time Management Approach

To excel in both her studies and professional life, Ragavi took her time to find a balance. Dedicating at least two hours to learn daily can yield substantial results. SkilloVilla’s Discord channel became a lifeline for her because it provided her support not only from the curriculum team but also enabling her to get her doubts cleared by peers as well who promptly responded to all her queries, especially those related to assignments.

One of the standout aspects of her learning path was the Capstone Projects and Case studies. These ranged from beginner to advanced levels, allowing her to apply theoretical knowledge to practical scenarios. She tackled assignments such as predicting cardiovascular disease under unsupervised techniques, with guidance and clarifications provided during weekend interactive sessions.

Building Strong Analytical Foundations

Ragavi’s journey with SkilloVilla is transformative. She started with the basics of Python, Excel, and SQL, areas she had struggled with before. Ragavi leveraged her newfound knowledge, especially in SQL, to showcase her expertise in her current workplace.
