What every IT student should know?

If you are an IT (information technology) student, you must have come across news that the 'sea is good for fish', after all this is the area that hires the most, and by 2016, according to estimates by Brasscom (Brazilian Association Information and Communication Technology Companies), companies should seek 30% more professionals in Brazil alone.

It is a fact: the economic crisis has not yet reached the information technology sector, but companies increasingly want qualified professionals. Conquest One, a specialist in recruiting and selecting IT professionals, alerts you that you are just starting your career: don't just look for technical knowledge. Want to know more? Check out the tips from Marcelo Vianna, managing partner of Conquest One:

1. Leave a legacy
The student, in general, is looking for his own professional development. The survey “Empresa do Sonho do Jovem in 2015”, recently published by Cia de Talentos, identified that in recent years this item has been on the priority list of young people between 17 and 26 years old. However, when entering the job market, it is necessary to leave a legacy. After all, if the company offers you the possibility to innovate, create and grow in your career, what can you offer in return? Think about it before going to a job interview!

2. Speak fluent English
English is basic for IT, and it is not that technical English that you learn at university. It is everyday English, which will allow you to participate in a conference call with professionals from India, the United States, the United Kingdom, understanding the different accents. The young IT professional must understand that migration to the cloud is a reality and that companies are going global.

The advice is even for the senior professional who still seeks many certifications. Of course, they are important and should be part of the journey, but English should not be overlooked. So, if you are not yet fluent, look for courses focused on conversation or exchange on vacation.

3. Use social media sparingly
The almost compulsive use of cell phones and social media can greatly affect your concentration at work. Care must be taken when using mobile devices in the corporate environment. After all, no one likes to talk to a person who spends all the time looking at the phone screen and answering messages on WhatsApp.

At work, you need to know when to put your cell phone aside. Therefore, before opening the Facebook or Twitter screen during working hours, try to understand the company's policy on the use of social networks and mobile devices. Another piece of advice: be careful what is shared. Posting confidential company information, complaining about the workplace, salary and the boss are unethical attitudes and causes of dismissal in many organizations.
