Systems engineers are tech’s big problem solvers. If you’ve got a knack for managing relationships, developing organisational needs, and of course, working with the latest and greatest tech systems, it’s worth turning your attention to the world of systems Engineer Jobs.
Here at Trust in SODA, we’ve placed many great systems engineers in thriving digital tech companies – we love helping write success stories, and we know what it takes to get ahead in the tech space.
We asked around, and here are some top tips from our best tech recruiters:
1. Gain Expertise in system design and implementation
Starting with the obvious must-have, expertise in system design and implementation ranks at number one. Systems engineers typically possess a wealth of knowledge when it comes to designing adaptable and highly complex IT systems, which includes the intricacies of hardware, software, networking, and databases.
2. Establish a commitment to learning
Historically, systems engineers tend to be educated to a degree level, carrying awards in computer science, engineering, and other related fields. Thanks to the diversification of the hiring process, this is changing for the better, and there are many alternative routes into the profession. That said, systems engineer jobs are founded on constant professional development, so a commitment to learning and upskilling is essential.
3. Get the right certifications
Depending on who you’re working for (and what industry you’re in) you may need to get your hands on some certifications. You can get certifications from INCOSE, the International Council on Systems Engineering, to drive your career progression forward.
4. Find the right recruiter
The right recruiter can make all the difference. It can be difficult to know what kind of opportunities are out there with the help of a specialist, and in a space as complex as tech, it’s important to have someone fighting your corner. That said, recruitment doesn’t have the best. We’re trying to change that for the better. At Trust in SODA, we pride ourselves on our industry-leading NPS score – it’s the gold standard for us, and underpins our dedication to our people-first, community-led recruitment services. Let us know if you need support and we can assign one of our specialist tech consultants to light the way.
Networking is crucial in today’s digitally connected world. It can unlock access to opportunities that might have been completely invisible before. If you stay in your lane, you only ever get to see inside that one lane. Networking can widen your horizons, and it’s easier than many people think. LinkedIn is our favourite, and we’d recommend it to anyone reaching out to try and form connections. Even if you’re reaching out to get yourself a mentor, every connection makes a big difference.
6. Find your niche!
You’ll find systems engineer jobs everywhere, you don’t have to restrict yourself to tech-born companies. Which industry excites you the most? What kind of work are you interested in doing? Ask yourself the big questions and align your goals with your career. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself in a position to narrow down your options and home in on your niche.
