Job skills

  1. 1. I.T Web Development To get into web devel- opment you will need: A flare for web design, it’s not the sort of ca- reer that you just idle your way through the day for the pay check, a genuine interest is a must in order to deal with the stress that comes with it. The ability to learn quickly, I.T is constantly evolv- ing and it is essential to keep up to date in this job role, you will need to learn new and updated languages and programmes to keep up to date. You will also need to be willing to adapt to up- dating products, even if that means “unlearning” what you knew before. Also an understanding of CSS, Javascript, HTML5 ,MySQL, PHP/ Apache, JQuery, and XML wouldn’t be a miss! General soft skills will be handy, not only for this job role but for any other too. These skills include, Planning, punctuality, team working, literacy, numeracy and problem solving. “Good design is about making other designers feels like idiots because they didn’t think of it first” Guido van Rossum is Dutch computer programmer who is best known as the author of the Python programming lan- guage. In the Python community, he’s known as “Benevolent dictator of life”. Why they are important.Skills Technical Because you can’t design a website if you don’t know how to code! Planning “failure to plan is planning to fail” Time management No one wants to employ someone who can’t manage time efficiently. Team working You can’t do everything alone, so if you can’t work in a team you won’t go very far. Creativity If you want to *create* a website, you must be *creative*. Problem solving When coding you will find yourself banging your head against a wall wondering why something isn’t working, problem solving skills is a must! Literacy Why make a website if no one can understand its content? Numeracy Numeracy skills are very important in this line of work, there is lots of numerical data involved in web development, so you better start revising!
