This post is about 13 habits that will help you succeed in associate software engineer jobs
For many people, coming from a non-technical background, landing an engineering job can be quite difficult. But with the right skills and attitudes, it can be done! These 13 habits are things we have seen in successful engineers at our company who got promoted to leadership positions or even higher. This list is not exhaustive, but it hits some key points.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and seek help – learn from others in the company
Keep up with new technologies so you can stay relevant in your field use free resources like Coursera or EdX
Continue learning outside of a classroom setting by attending meetups and going to conferences where you can network with potential employers and peers who are interested in the same things as you, these events also provide opportunities for practice presenting skills before an audience of people who will appreciate your work!
Make sure that when doing research on recent trends or topics, make sure they’re related to what interests you as well as what’s worth reading about (e.g., don’t just read about the latest updates in your niche, but also find time for reading articles that are not directly related to what you’re doing)
Attend as many conferences and meetups (online or in-person) as possible being social will help land a job
Make sure that when preparing content, it’s coherent with other work you’ve done so they can be published together on sites like LinkedIn or Medium, this gives an employer more insight into who you are and how deeply committed to success at work you are!
