“Writing code is creative. You can write code in five different ways. You can use the same language in five different ways to write a poem, but only when you use the words in the right way does the poem sound good. Writing a code in an optimum way is just like writing a good poem,” he says.
Consider how you approached an assignment and whether your contribution made a difference. Have you written code that improved an application’s performance or a business user’s ability to do a task? If you have, “that shows creativity — that you see there’s a better way to do something,” Panchal says.

When the business asks for help finding a solution, do you ask why they’re asking so you can better understand the problem? When asked to pull data, do you learn why it’s needed so you can present the data in a way that offers a holistic view of the information for the person who requested it?
If you answered yes to these questions, then you’ve got the mindset that hiring managers want.
