What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Senior Application Developer in Miramar:
"Focus."
Consider a focus and stay with it. Instead of switching from Java to PHP to .NET, it is better to select one, stay with it, specialize in it and consider any relevant certifications in that one area. In summary, it is my opinion and experience that it is better to be a specialist than a generalist.
