You might be interested in entering the IT industry of Singapore by setting up your own web development company. If you have a knack for learning IT technologies, especially those related to web design and maintenance, then this could be for you.
You could start out in the IT industry by becoming a freelance web developer at first. This may be a big challenge especially since you could be competing against experienced web developers. It can be daunting if they have complete IT teams since they could literally give more to their clients. But the good news is that even newbies in web development can thrive in this field, thus gaining valuable experience.
Traits and Qualities to Look Out For
When you’ve gained enough experience and have sufficient funds, you can try putting up your own web development company. As the boss and owner of the IT company, you have the opportunity to pursue growth by hiring talented employees. There are some traits to look for in future employees, such as:
- Proficiency in IT technologies, particularly web design skills: Naturally, you need this as the first element in your IT company. Without this, you could set up a company but who would do the work? If you’re proficient then you could handle some of the work, but to grow the company you need competent employees.
- A positive, optimistic work attitude: You may hear horror stories of monster employees who are tolerated because they get the job done well. But you can’t have that kind of attitude problem in your company because it will cause problems eventually. It is best to choose employees who have a well-rounded personality, without sacrificing the need for IT competence.
- Know their limitations: In a far-away galaxy there exist IT employees who can do practically anything you ask them to do. But here on planet Earth, particularly in Singapore, you can only hire mortals for your IT company. So you should make sure your employees are upfront about their limitations regarding IT work. This saves you time, energy and effort when hiring the right employees.
- Have great people skills: Some potential employees may need constant supervision because their people skills might not match their web development skills. So you can put them to work on the web development part while you handle communication with the client. Keep an eye out though for potential employees who can take on either IT work or client relationship work. Those are golden.
- Can handle complicated client requests: Your key employees should be ready when a client is seeking a company to revamp the website for them. They should also be ready to consult you if the client’s request seems a bit out of the ordinary. The Singapore web development plan doesn’t have to be derailed just because the client wants something out of the blue. Take note if your team is fazed by that because they may need more training in web development skills.
Growing your IT company in Singapore can be a major adventure. Fortunately, you can always hire good employees who will help you steer the business.
