Recommendations from a Data Engineer

Here are the courses Alina took that helped her advance in her career.

“I listed all my certificates on LinkedIn, and most of the projects I completed through my courses on Github. These served as starting points for my interviews that conveyed how I'm a persistent and dedicated learner. I am happy that Coursera offered me the chance to gain knowledge in new topics that are in demand right now, and to help me prove that I’ve learned these new skills.” -Alina C.
