Attributes Valued by Employers
For example, if a web design company were looking to recruit new web designers and developers, they would need to look for candidates with different skills. They will be looking for someone with creativity and numeracy skills to become a designer and they would be looking for someone who has coded in many languages such as HTML,CSS and PHP to become a web developer. That was just one section of the IT industry. There are obviously more sections of the IT industry but it comes to show that Technical Knowledge is key when it comes to an employer hiring an applicant.
Health + Safety
- Not having any food or drink near computers or machines
- Do not leave wires lying on the floor
- There must be enough room for you to work (not too cramped)
They were just some rules that you need to follow.
Your employer's must provide you with certain things so that it is healthy for you to work. Some of these things include;
- Provide adjustable chairs
- Provide foot rests
You need to be organized in the IT industry because if you are not, then you will lose time and money and you cannot do that if you are working in an IT environment.
Written Communication Skills
Determined to do something
Problem-Solving is key in the IT workplace. You may come across errors and problems when working on a computer. Being a great problem-solver would require you to locate the problem, look for solutions and then solve your problems with these solutions. You could come across technical and personal problems that you can hopefully resolve.
