Amit's Background -
Amit is from Jaipur and is a B.Tech graduate. He started his career as a Java developer and wanted to switch from Java to Big Data. Something was stopping him from doing so.
I wanted to shift my career from Java to Big Data. I noticed a good growth in Big Data technology, and also knew I could do much more than be a Java developer. The thing that continuously pulled me back was the lack of proper guidance. Then, I decided to take a step and move toward the dream.

Amit immediately took action; he started talking to different people and researched on social platforms and search engines to find out the best career guide in Big Data. Through a referral, Amit reached DataFlair. After clearing his doubts through conversation, he enrolled himself into the certified Big Data Hadoop and Spark training course of DataFlair and started his journey with us.
Why did Amit enroll for Big Data?
Amit was looking for a job in Big Data. The things that motivated him for taking the online Big Data Hadoop training from DataFlair were- real-time Big Data projects, lifetime access to the course, and the mock interview. That could help him get a good job.
From Java Developer to Big Data Lead
Amit was a fresher to the Big Data industry; he had no knowledge of this technology. Now, after taking this course from DataFlair, he is a lead in Big Data. He cracked 15 interviews in one go.
