Soft Skills for Techies
April 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00pm, repeating until April 17, 2020
In popular culture, technology professionals or techies are frequently portrayed as nerds with minimal social skills. This stereotype is not only incorrect but it acts as a self-reinforcer for many tech professionals. Today every business is technology business, and technology professionals have to constantly communicate and collaborate with business teams, customers, subject matter experts and various other stakeholders. Despite the fact that techie jobs are highly interdisciplinary and need a lot of interpersonal skills, these skills are not always taught or acquired in engineering courses in universities. In workplace this skill becomes an essential skill to navigate and thrive. Through this webinar series, I aim to fill in this gap.
