Top tips to get hired in software development

Guidance from Director, Joseph Thushe 

Never stop learning – tech is constantly evolving

As a Software Developer, you can develop your career in two ways. Firstly, you may choose to become a niche specialist; perfecting the coding languages you use or build experience in a particular product, with the aim of being an expert in a specific area. Alternatively, you might want to broaden your skillset by exploring what other programming languages you can learn or projects you can gain experience from. Both career paths thrive from being passionate about what you can learn next! You’ll only benefit from growing your skills and this will open doors to further opportunities. Remember tech is constantly evolving and so you need to stay up to date on the latest coding languages and techniques to remain in demand. 

Build a portfolio

Having a portfolio is crucial in software development, with Hiring Managers often wanting to see one with an application. The products and software you work on are likely to be very different from organisation to organisation. A portfolio is a great way of showcasing your knowledge, skills and the impact you have made. You’ll be able to demonstrate your problem-solving skills, coding abilities and teamwork through tangible evidence. 

A step further from this? Try including references or testimonials from your colleagues or managers, to show the true value of your work!

Confidence in communication

A position in software development is more collaborative than you might think! When developing products or software, you may work with different project managers or stakeholders to discuss requirements. Great communication is key to ensure a shared vision, eliminating barriers of miscommunication or potential risks from misunderstanding. Efficient communication is built over time through building your confidence. Make sure you are getting involved with each meeting or stand up, listen attentively, and engage effectively with your team.
