… under­stand how oth­er cities’ sys­tems work.

… under­stand the art of tech­nol­o­gy.

… are already knowl­edge­able about var­i­ous design soft­ware, and are able to learn new ones eas­i­ly.

… are excit­ed to learn new skills in real time pro­duc­tive­ly.

… think sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly, crit­i­cal­ly, and strate­gi­cal­ly about com­plex and abstract issues.

… have the abil­i­ty to work inde­pen­dent­ly; know when to ask ques­tions and have good judge­ment.

… have the ambi­tion to take on new respon­si­bil­i­ties

… are com­mit­ted to improv­ing the world.
