Hello guys, the best way to learn all this words is by practicing, an amazing way to do it is by imagining you have different professional profiles, here is my example.

My name is José Mendoza I am currently studying an engineering major. I would love to start my career in the tech-world as a backend developer. My most remarkable skills as a programmer is to visualize issues in code, to be a teamworker and follow workflows.

professional profile for a lawyer :
_I am José Mendoza, Lawyer at Platzi, my main task as a lawyer in the tech-industry are, to provide analysis, feedback and legal advices to the CTO and CEO of Platzi. I need to constantly update my skills by doing research and visualizing the upcoming challenges.

Hi everyone,

It¬īs necessary to put this words in context because in this way you can assimilate more fluently. Thanks teacher for this glossary, I recommend to every body read a lot in page like: We can cover two skill:

  • Practice english
  • Stay in touch about was is happening in world-tech.

Kinds Regards

My Strategy is to turn weakness into strengths

i don¬īt know what write at this moment,but only will say thanks.

Nowadays, more companies in the world are researching professionals in Latin America with our talent in different careers, but more and more in Tech-world, without matter our city of residence, since we are at the virtuality age.
For this reason, we must develop or update our CV to show off most of our strengths, and if is possible to try to make up our weaknesses.
Soft skills are related about some knowledge that we have learnt through the time, like experiences but these ones are neither caught at universities nor imparted by a teacher. However, more companies are more focused in those kinds of skills than harder ones. For instance, analytic, confident, collaborative, cheerful, communicative, curious, determined, goal-oriented, logical, leadership, proactive, organized, outstanding, sociable and teamwork are categorized as soft ones.
On the other hand, we find hard skills, they are everything related to strengths that have been caught at a university and more of then we can get a degree or certificate, such as programmer, backend developer, frontend developer, UI / UX designer, bachelor degree, graduate education and master’s degree.
Nevertheless, if you don’t really fell comfortable finding a job, why not starting your own business as an entrepreneur of a start-up.
All in all, we must visualize us becoming as the next CTO or CEO position of the most recolonized IT company of the world, exported from Latin America.
