What are you trying to achieve?

Well, 2018-04-05T19:30:24+08:00 is proper date, which contains information about DateTimeOffset[^] for specific time zone[^].

C#
string sdate = "2018-04-05T19:30:24+08:00";
DateTimeOffset dto = DateTimeOffset.Parse(sdate);
Console.WriteLine("'{0}' => local time: '{1}'", sdate, dto.LocalDateTime);
Console.WriteLine("'{0}' => universal time: '{1}'", sdate, dto.UtcDateTime);

Output:
'2018-04-05T19:30:24+08:00' => local time: '2018-04-05 13:30:24' //for Poland ;)
'2018-04-05T19:30:24+08:00' => universal time: '2018-04-05 11:30:24'

You are parsing a string that contains a TimeZone offset, so the DateTime will replicate that. Use one of the methods provided by DateTime Structure (System)[^].

This is spelled out in the documentation for DateTime.ToString()[^].

You didn't read that link. You're just looking for someone to write your code for you.

TEACH YOURSELF. If you don't have this skill, you're not going to survive in this business. Custom Date and Time Format Strings | Microsoft Docs[^]
