How to succeed in the IT industry

Yesterday, two of our employees had a career discussion with the students at KYH in Stockholm. They shared their career-related experience in the IT industry, shared their lessons learned from recent career choices and how it’s like to work at Basefarm. We at Basefarm are currently looking for new staff and are always interested in getting in touch with new talent who are passionate about technology as much as we are. We thought that you who are students or young professionals also can benefit of what we discussed:

Tips for you who seeks a career in the IT industry:

  • Have a 3-5 year plan
  • Some adversities are inevitable
  • Working with support is good to learn, even if it’s not your long-term goal in your career
  • Variety is the spice of life, you might need to move/change work to develop
  • You need to find out what you want to do
  • Large companies controls you more, but you can use them to many benefits, both financial and personal
  • Small companies can often develop you more if you are prepared to get involved – Basefarm example
  • Money is not everything, but it helps

Thanks to everyone at KYH who attened our career discussion yesterday and thank’s for all the rewarding conversations afterwards. We hope to see you in the future!
