Far and wide

Make sure that if you work in IT you don't focus on just one aspect of your skills.

Strive for a balance of the following:

  • Can code in at least 3 languages
  • Knows about OO concepts, or other similar design abstracts
  • Knows how to write SQL (the main language for data)
  • Knows how to write and manage requirements (suggests a good understanding of English and communication)
  • Knows something about how networks work (nobody creates islands anymore)
  • Can present their material one on one or to a crowd without belittling them

Covering these general bases makes you stand out from the crowd.
