Daniel: I cannot overstate how important it is to be proactive, or how many opportunities will open up for them if they practice this. Even when it is never expressed., you can be sure that the team you work with appreciates you for it. The results of working this way are easy to track, it is evident in one’s performance as well as in their relationships with their colleagues. I would rather you took my word for it, but if you don’t believe me and are willing to stake your job on this, just try to fall back for the next couple of months, and then pay attention to all the challenge and stress that will quickly follow.
Maria: My two cents would be that diligence in managing time and a commitment to excellence, are the things that are guaranteed to distinguish them from their peers.
Goretti: They should always remember that a career is a marathon, not a sprint. Keeping this perspective will be helpful especially when obstacles appear in their path. The senior developers they admire were once also just beginning, they succeeded thus far because they kept their end goals in mind.
Hearing Ahmed, Daniel, Maria and Goretti speak about these ideas of teamwork, and work ethic, one cannot help but feel proud about the growth they have managed in such a short time or expect that they are on the cusp, about to launch into rewarding careers. Kanzu Code has always been keen to work with young and bright new minds in the tech space, hoping to be able to offer them a good foundation that propels them onto bigger and better things.
