comment What are the most needed skills for someone entering the workforce as a software engineer?
That's very positive. Most of my time is spent making the algorithms and architecture, I try to pawn off things like GUI development, making web servers and writing documentation onto other members of the group. I was doing that pretty much because I was lazy and was trying to save development time, but perhaps it is a good idea!

comment What are the most needed skills for someone entering the workforce as a software engineer?
Though I am part of the chemistry department, I am mainly developing software and should be publishing 1-2 programs per year. I am not sure if what you said applies, as many of the companies (all software engineering) who gave talks on that day said they were happy employing PhDs in numerate subjects with coding experience. Is this not true?

Thanks, I have been trying to incorporate team work more. There are three coders in our group, and I have been delegating out different areas of the program I am going to publishing soon in order to get better experience in that area. I have also been reading code complete and so my commenting is pretty good, but I will make an effort to look in more depth at maintenance
