What would you recommend to a young person preparing to enter the IT field?
My recommendation for a young person preparing to enter the IT field would be to focus on combining their work and passion, as this can be key to achieving success in this dynamic industry. It's important for them to stay informed about the market and make their career development a priority by taking advantage of opportunities like the Cegeka Academy program, which connects students with industry experts. This can help them gain insight into different company cultures and provide access to potential mentors. Ultimately, their attitude and approach to their work can make a significant impact on their success in the IT field.
Who have you learned the most from during your career?
Rather than singling out one person, I believe that I have learned the most from everyone around me, including my own mistakes. I am a strong believer in 360-degree learning. However, if I had to identify someone who had a significant impact on me, it would be one of my former managers, C.B. Their constructive attitude and objective judgment taught me valuable lessons that have stayed with me throughout my career.
