2. VMware vSphere

Another skill that can help you to get hired as a core software engineer is knowledge of VMware vSphere. It is VMware's cloud computing virtualization platform and comes preloaded with the latest vCenter Configuration Manager and vCenter Application Discovery Manager. It also adds the ability of vMotion to move multiple virtual machines simultaneously from one host server to another. So, for developers looking to succeed as a core software developer, it is important to build up a deep understanding of the technology and drive key processes utilizing them.

3. Java

The ability to work on Java is also an essential requirement to be an expert core software engineer. It is one of the most widely utilized languages that is capable of supporting projects of several niches in the software development industry. Java has been a relevant language for over a decade and considered a preferred choice in the industry. It offers major advantages like the option of writing and running codes anywhere irrespective of the architecture of the system. The language also seems to fulfill every requirement for modern software development projects including cross-platform services. The language is also well known for its advantages like the option of compiling codes on any platform supporting Java Runtime Environment. So, in order to improve your chances of getting hired as a core software engineer, keep improving your Java knowledge with time.

4. Python

Another essential skill required to work as a core software engineer is Python. It is probably the most widely used general-purpose programming language today. Initially developed to offer code readability and indentations, Python quickly carved out its niche and a global following. Python as a language was built with an object-oriented approach to allow programmers to write clean and logical codes for various industries and requirements. The language can be used for developing digital solutions for different industries and sees a constant spotlight in sectors like - data analytics, machine learning, and other data-driven projects. It is also an extremely versatile language and offers support for essential tasks that can define a project’s success.

5. Interpersonal skills

The global tech community prefers to work with professionals with confidence and excellent communication skills. Collaborative efforts play a major role in the present industry to ensure efficiency in the operations of a company.
