Waqas is a common face when it comes to the local tech scene, and is always found encouraging freshers to take their own initiates. We asked Waqas to share advice for the followers of our page and here is what he has to say:

“It seems a decent number of freshers are investing their time in building skills that are too short termed. Either they’re falling for the “get rich quick” scams or they lack guidance.
