•Identity your niche - it is not enough to get into tech, there is a place of knowing where you fit in exactly. Everybody has an area of strength, what you need to do is just channel more energy towards it.
•Develop very good communication skills - as somebody in tech, you will work with people, you get to work as a team and humans can be really tiring but with great communication skills you can handle any kind of human you come in contact with. Once again, develop very good communication skills.
•Develop great research skills - there is always an existing project you can check out to help you with a project, do not neglect the place of researching as it's a very needed skill in tech. Every great person in tech is a researcher.
•Never get tired of learning - there are always improvements, new things to learn and new trends in the tech industry and so you are not left behind learning should be part of your core skills as a tech enthusiast. Take courses, watch videos, invest in yourself.
•Network with people in your skill of specialization - another way to make it big is by meeting people in your field of choice, there's always a point these people can recommend you for job openings, free tech events and the likes. Shyness does not do the thing, take a bold step to reach out to people.
•Have a mentor you can easily access - never neglect the teaching of elders, have a mentor you can acccess, a mentor that can point out your errors, a mentor that when you get corrected by the person there's a push to do more. Never neglect the gift of having people around you.
