A common belief that IT guys are those weirdos sitting all-day-all-night behind the screen, making weird geek jokes and being interested in nothing but coding, is fading away. While the industry was getting on its feet, we could have called IT a rare and mysterious jewel. Now, technology has gotten so deep into everyday business processes and everyday life, so that the game, how people work and, most importantly, the way they interact within the teams, has changed. It has become a pure teamwork play behind the numbers and technology stacks, and the more employees and companies want to achieve, the more they need to collaborate together.
At GitMax, our recruiters pay a lot of attention to how fruitful candidates communicate during the first contact, at the interviews, and how they present themselves. And they always see potential. Some soft skills you get with ease, some you work on hard and finally attain them, but one thing remains the same - you create your own professional reality - through socializing. If you hire employees with honed soft skills, you can be sure that other team members working together will become more than just employees, which, hence, would directly affect the climate in the team, team’s productivity and its level of happiness. We all want to be happy and satisfied employees at work, in the end, right?
