In How to double your career growth as a Software Engineer- Part 02 we talked about proactive attitude. Today we are going to talk about maintaining work ethics.
Software Engineers should be value-focused, not working hour focused. Yes, you should have a work and life balance, but working just 40 hours a week without creating any value is useless. You may work fewer hours, but your output should be countable and it should make an impact on the company you are working for. It’s also true for your clients.
Good software developers do not make money from the people around them, rather they make money for the people around them. You see, if you can make your client successful, they will help you to be successful and to make them successful you have to make a good product and a good product can not be built without hard work. You may have to work overtime and work on weekends sometimes to make a successful product on time.
One of our employees with good working ethics once said, “We used to work hard and slept less before exams in our school, college and university life, but we do not want to work a few hours more for our company when they need it”. This attitude makes a Software Engineer different from others.
Software Engineers should maintain some work ethics to double their career growth. What are those ethics?
