1. Learn English!

Starting your career as an iOS developer is possible without a good level of English, however, you will not have career growth, but all of us want it.

2. Soft skills

Improve your emotional intelligence skill and, most importantly, learn to communicate with people. Empathy is also very important - when you perfectly understand the customer's needs and are able to convince them that his/her product is in safe hands.

3. Know your own value!

You should not exaggerate, but also you should not underestimate yourself. Every high-qualified specialist was a beginner once- if others can do it, then why not give it a try?
