Members of our Product Analysis team at Web Teks mostly have one of two career objectives in mind: product management and software development. This post was written by an Analyst who falls into that second group, about struggles with learning a new language.
I'm the kind of person who knows a little bit about a lot of things. Coming into my role at work, my assumption was that this would make me a good software product analyst. It seems to make me a good conversationalist, but as an analyst it gets me blindsided sometimes. I find myself confronted with the fact that I need to be really good at something to be particularly helpful. Since I myself have argued for the merits of specialization, I decided "I can nip this problem in the bud. I can specialize."
