Their idea and work base. So I'm completing the trump appropriately within the time. So that is the main talent, obviously, because most of the people you always on the meeting, so you have to make sure you are creating something for yourself to work on those on. The second thing is, um, technology. What is you need to be always on those, like eyes that a better solutions you can think of. Is that a cost of particular Children in which can solve the problem? Or sometimes it can be really like I don't want could previously, like one year back.

What skills and qualities does your team look for while hiring? What kind of questions does your team typically ask from candidates?

Summarized By: Jeff Musk on Fri Sep 11 2020
the quality is there to again. There are two things. The first one is technology wise. So we want someone toe someone who can lead to logically. And then I actually, when I agreed to hire anyone the main thing that is I don't even if they don't owe me. But when you give solutions, one has to listen to the stations and understand Come up with a solution that is much more better than, uh, what present is being able to give an answer.

So please make sure that religion try to answer the question and then around to it. Yes, but first tried to answer the question. And so, in the first position, like mine, you have to have a really good skills and work sequel and basically built like like understanding what data models will work. And actually, yeah, maybe the best way Thio start with a project like but one smaller dimension. What? We suddenly suppose that our nation's trying to do, uh, like another one data weight of data than easier.

So when you are a senior data taken afterwards, you are gonna be a tech Arctic. That's the next level. So Takac, our technical director, is also in great position to start with, uh, they take a data effect is only focused on data left database levels system. There is a taker with mainly focused on integrations with other systems. It's more like them. You also have to know right on our T shirt, whatever the technology, how does it fit through and you also make the report on Should I buy that software? I'm not, Does it actually, Drinan toe Maidana, They're saying, however, from oceans come back, promotions are pretty hard. That's the thing That's true. How long visited?

Based on experience at: Business Intelligence Engineer, Infosys
Summarized By: Jeff Musk on Fri Sep 11 2020
So as I was saying, my my basically responsibility is making sure the data models are accurate and my system is all all the time or 100 properly. And these are much everyday. For example, uh, that we can hit a lot of power supplies and we lost all our service and they're back up and it's not running. So making Children telling everyone followed with everyone. But the reports are gonna be slower our spring to the other system. Like what happens in this kind of what happens to the incrementalist? Probably this all this so and the strategy, what is and start with very divide the problem into a very spots and manageable change and keep it going. Welcome back.

eso in masters informations. The greatest parties, especially at the university of you. The you will see there best off your 100% knowledge. I do remember there is this coast called Big Data. And, um, initially we started like, that's the same Mr Coast. We started to see a C plus president. Then we moto java, and then we moved to fight them. Then we motor park in it just for its A 413141 period. Uh, that's that's where the universal view, the especially on the comfort science. Uh, it prepared to actually be I can solve it.

What three life lessons have you learned over your career? Please discuss the stories behind these lessons, if possible. Stories could be yours or observed.

Summarized By: Jeff Musk on Fri Sep 11 2020
the first lesson. What I learned is, uh, it Z uh, it's always make sure you're not in your progress compared Thio every time you can't hit the 100 but making sure that you are making progress without giving up. So that's the first thing. So second thing is, technology is very well start. Uh, it's in your hands to how you are going to shave it, because you can. You can do anything with technology when you're thinking about it. But don't stick toe nothing for technology. Explore your technologies like improves Asia or be a unpublishable. Any scripting drivers? Exactly. And the third thing is always, always learn a new concept. For example, there is a vegan version off. What says we do watch No incremental. There's a lot of difference which usually come out. There is not only you. There's a lot of people who are thinking all about this stuff. So there are a lot of people who actually submitted by, right, uh, white papers. So just keep on, we go through them, you will give you a really good studies. Yeah, yeah. No

What starting job and internships would you recommend to students who hope to grow professionally like you? What other parting advice, dos, and don'ts would you give?

Summarized By: Jeff Musk on Fri Sep 11 2020
as an intern, I always recommend people to start. So if you're looking so if you're looking for a data analyst, start becoming doing a data analyst Internet. It can be very tedious where you're just looking at exults. But still, it's better than nothing. If you're going for a data entry, it would soak effort to get into software engineering Venture sponsor. So no index advice. If you do that, when he asks internships in different sectors, that's much better for your career to grow. And the only advises, please in Inter realism to the interview. He's not those that anything, so make sure listen to him properly, asking questions. The more questions you are, the more comfortable you and interview that's the equivalent.
