Fábio’s Answer

For any job you have you must master your hard skills, but soft skills are of the utmost importance too. Communication skills, in particular, can make or break your career. In every workplace you will need to deal with other peers and/or managers, and even if you work by yourself you will need to deal with your customers. There is really no way around it, so you might as well make the most of it! In any case, you will certainly learn a lot by experience, and you don’t need to worry too much about learning everything, be it technical or soft skills, before starting your first job.
But if I can give you a piece of advice, it would be to try to build trust with the people you work with. You don’t need to be best friends with them, but you need to be reliable and trustful, supportive as you can or as needed, always accomplishing what you commit to, and trusting them the way you want them to trust yourself — always leading by example. And you can start all of this right now, even outside of work!

Viviana’s Answer

Hello Ethan ,

In my personal experience I think the most important soft skill to develop before applying for job interviews is communication . The other skills you can develop within the job , and that is what almost all of professionals do , first of all because there are a lot of skills and they take time to develop . But communication is essential not only in the professional are but also in daily life , someone who can share their ideas is vital . Words are powerful and they have meaning , to use them correctly is a great tool . Good Luck , with your future interviews !

Shwetha B’s Answer

Along with technical/job skills like programming and concept knowledge, interpersonal skills (like communication, Listening, problem solving, decision making, team work) are very important that help you interact better with your team. When you practice these skills, you'll be ready to take on any situation with confidence.

While the technical skills help you on-the-job skills and the college provide you with the knowledge you need to perform your tasks, behavior-based skills like communicating effectively help build positive relationships with your coworkers and customers.

What I have learnt and experienced in my career of 5 years is that, you do your best and keep learning from every experience you have. During conflict situations, I try to analyze what went wrong and what I could have done to make it better. My manager was my best confident where I could share my issues and how to overcome the challenges in your life to make it better for you and others. Along the way, I wanted to enjoy what I do with my work.

As IT professionals, we not only communicate with the team members, but we also may interact with the other departments of a company and with people outside the company. From staff meetings to one-on-one calls to conversations with your colleagues, there is always an opportunity to communicate. Ensure that you do it well.
Once you've done your research on the soft skills ensure you put in the work necessary to improve your skills.

Michael’s Answer

Hi Ethan,


This is a good question and one that is very important. Given the current state of the Millennial culture, it's important to keep a certain mindset when you seek employment. Companies these days are looking for dedicated employees who have a vested interest in making the company successful. Through this it is necessary to maintain a good attitude, be amenable to a changing culture, be able to work on a team well, provide feedback when appropriate, and honestly just work hard. There will always be some sort of issue at work and it's easy to fall into a hole of complaining about it. If there is an issue, do not complain. Bring the issue up with your supervisor with a solution to fix it. This will be much more appreciated than any sort of subversive conversation.


Set expectations in your mind of the sorts of goals you want to achieve in your profession and work as hard as you can at it.


Thanks!


Mike
