Quite often we hear hiring managers complain that candidates are not technically skilled & job readySpektra Academy’s mission is to change that notion. Our mission is to provide a premium Hands-on Training experience while learning Microsoft technologies. 

Spektra Academy is a great opportunity for both, college graduates and professionals looking to up-skill in various Microsoft Azure Certifications and land a job in the Cloud Computing field. Most institutes offer a theoretical learning path, but fail to provide hands-on training because of a lack of Lab infrastructure. 

Need for Hands-on Training 

“I hear and I forget

I see and I remember

I do and I understand”

The is a very famous Chinese saying which emphasizes the need to have real-world experience. The same analogy can be applied to the importance of Hands-on labs for technology training.

Importance of Hands-on Training for Interview Preparation

When a manger is looking to hire members for their (Azure) Cloud team(s), the fore most important skill they expect is Hands-on experience. They will assess if the candidate has any exposure to the Cloud environment.  

From a job candidate perspective, you need to show your experience, and if you don’t have job experience, then you need to demonstrate that you have exposure working on the Cloud.  

Some of the questions the interviewer may ask to check your exposure are as below:   

Q: State the purpose of the cloud configuration file??’ 

Q: ‘What are the sizes of the Azure VM?’ 

Q: ‘How is the price of the Azure subscription placed?’ 

Q: ‘What are the benefits of the traffic manager in Windows Azure?’ 

While answering these questions might show you have the relevant knowledge, you can also flaunt your skills by showing Certifications. Long story short, Certifications bring Credibility to the skill’s you possess
