Let’s face the truth: these days in the tech world, talent is in high demand, but just having the technical skills is not enough to land the job. In today’s collaborative work environment, many teams are geographically and culturally diverse. Your future co-workers also have diverse technical skills that will overlap yours. Technology is ever evolving and while you may know Jira today, in a few months you may need to learn Bamboo, Hudson or Jenkins for Continuous Integration.
You’re probably well aware of your level of expertise, and you can expect common IT interview questions to drill into that knowledge. Sure, you may need to brush up on some of the more obscure tech skills, but if you can confidently walk your talk, then chances are you won’t be shocked by any outlier technical questions.
However, simply proving your knowledge may not be enough, especially when the next ten candidates in line have the same skills. So what differentiates you as the front runner for your next great career opportunity?
