UpCode Academy‘s recent Python graduation party saw Ninja Van’s Wesley Ng speaking to students about the soft skills required to work in the tech industry.
“When you join a startup, the goal is to really learn and that’s something even I am doing as well,” says the Regional Tech HR Business Partner. “I tend to focus on a few things when hiring for an engineer and these are: curiosity, humility and ability to collaborate. It’s important for engineers to be able to look at a problem and think about how they can solve it but at the same time think about how they too, can be better.”
Besides the insightful fireside chat that Wesley had with UpCode’s Rachel Lee, students also heard from one of UpCode’s instructors, Gary Theis, as he shares about the future happenings at UpCode.
