My Tech Career Started Here

by Elvis Alvarez

I obtained my degree from the University of Houston in August 2018. Despite obtaining a fundamental skillset in programming and mathematics, I felt there was a huge gap in my soft skills and emotional intelligence to be work ready. My technical skills were at a high level, but my soft skills were very low, especially in my approach towards a critical problem-solving task. Additionally, I had a vigorous fear of public speaking. After going through a 3-month immersive technology training program at Talent Path, I have overcome that fear. Due to the limitless amount of practice and all the honest feedback from my colleagues, my soft skills have comprehensively improved. Additionally, after our focus on BI tools like Power BI and Tableau, there was improvement in my technical skills. Overall, both of those skillsets have reached a potential balance where I feel more work-ready than I was when I graduated.

The reason I choose Talent Path is mainly because of personal growth. I took the initiative to join the program since I wanted to challenge myself to the fullest. However, I also wanted to build my network with qualitative business people and learn their ideology on how they became who they are. Understandably, the ingredients to success are passion, talent, and hard work. However, in terms of growth, building up a supportive group around you does increase your chance to have a successful career path.

After completing my training, I’m very optimistic to work at Talent Path as a Business Analyst. Few of my goals over the next three months includes learning and acquiring new technology skillsets. There is no limit to acquiring new proficiencies throughout your career path.

Attending to Talent Path has been a life-changing experience. Thanks to the honest feedback I received from my peers and instructors, not only did I fundamentally learn about the benefits of using BI tools and the importance of data integrity, the confidence I gained in my soft skills such as public speaking is insurmountable.
