Where It All Began
After the completion of his bachelor's degree in computer science, he started working in HR. There, he would fill requirements for Big Data professionals. This was the first time he heard the term Big Data. He was excited to know more about Big Data, so he Googled it and read about it all night long. He says -
When I was working as an HR executive, my manager told me that we have requirement of Big data developer and this is your work to fill all the vacant positions with the skilled Big Data professionals. Don't know why but before doing this I just thought of what Big Data is. I Google it, just for the eagerness. Then I got to know that Big Data is the latest technology and most of the people and companies are moving forward in this. I was liking my job and not interested at all in coding, until and unless I touched Big Data. I learned the entire night about Big Data.
Will Power Works
When Satendra was recruiting Big Data professionals, he hardly selected 5 to 7 questions from Google that he would ask the candidates. Then he interviewed those candidates with basics of Big data.
I asked the questions to them then I found not a single person was there who could answer all the questions. So, I noticed that there was a lack of people and more opportunities. At that time, I felt a spark in my body, why don't I try for Big Data. There was something which continuously pushing me to do some challenging. I started reading over the internet. After some time I found a perfect guide for Big Data and that was DataFlair.

When I enrolled for the Big Data Hadoop and Spark Certification course, I was very nervous, I had no technical exposure, didn't know any basic terminologies, but the Instructor has helped me like anything, he answered all my questions.
