Communication - What I Learned about at Techie Youth !

In the process of making a product, you're communicating with customers, investors, and your own team members who are helping you finish and improve your product. It is crucial to have good communication so there isn't any misunderstanding or any other negativity that comes out of bad communication. Words can be more powerful than actions and most people know that by now. It is senseless to be careless with words that can be detrimental to the process of creating a product.

Job requirements/Recruiting - What I learned at Techie Youth !

Having a professional and great resume and cover letter is your chance at getting the job you've applied for.

It makes sense as you are face to face with the interviewer and you have the chance to present yourself the way you want to be perceived.

Recruiting - What I learned about at Techie Youth !

Recruiting is something that doesn't come to my mind since I'm the one usually applying for a job and waiting to be recruited.
