Do you just love fixing things, specifically if it involves high-end technology? Have you always wondered why do computers have bugs? A Software Engineer’s duties include testing, writing algorithms, maintenance of computer systems, coding or deployment. To put it in a layman’s term, basically, they do whatever it takes to make a computer run smoothly but it’s not as easy as it sounds. The editing software, gaming software, business applications and operating systems you use are developed by Software Engineers. As the world is already in the digital age, this career is high in demand and will be an indispensable job in the future.
Software Engineers are well paid
Plenty of employment opportunities as organisations rely heavily on digital technology
Work in a cold and comfortable office
Postgraduate education may be necessary
Competitive job market
Prone to eye strain due to long hours in front of computer
Setting up IT systems
Modify or improve existing IT systems
Test compatibility issues
Advise clients on how to operate softwares
Incase of any queries
Knowledge of programming languages
Being able to work under pressure
Although a Software Engineer mostly works on the computer, they also have to liaise with clients. These clients are sometimes demanding, expecting you to complete a task at a specific date because their customers need to use their online services too. If the issue prolongs, you need to have creative problem solving skills.
Being able to explain in non-technical terms
You have learned what happens inside a computer; its operating systems, programming languages and all, but your clients from the marketing department would not understand a single word. You need to have the patience to explain the issue and how you’ve fixed it in non-technical terms so they understand.
A Bachelor’s Degree is the benchmark for Software Engineering jobs. Those who have obtained a Master’s Degree and/or know how to code in difficult languages with related work experience will be prioritised.
Software Engineers typically work between 8 to 10 hours a day, sometimes in shifts or overtime, depending on the company you’re working for and as the need arise. They sometimes work alone or in small teams. If you’re working in an IT firm that has international clients, you will most likely be deployed to the overseas company itself or work here according to international time zones.
