According to Angela, Vodafone Ghana is interested in soft skills as well, since it enables the technology communications company to innovate constantly and improve customer experience.
She gave an example of how Vodafone’s Robotics Squad can collaborate effectively with other teams to develop tools and products that address customers’ needs.
She further urged participants to be curious, confident, and take advantage of every opportunity.
“Be confident and put yourself out there. What is the worst that can ever happen? No one ever got fired for asking a question, having an idea, or putting their hands up for something. I take advantage of every single opportunity, and this has been a running theme for my career,” she said.
Angela encouraged young girls thinking of pursuing a career in tech to embrace challenges and give their best.
“There is no substitute for hard work, whether you are male or female. I think that the work environment is also changing, and women are getting more support. Be creative and inquisitive, and I guarantee you will attract females and males who share your values and will be there for you when times get tough.”
