We hire only the most passionate, talented people. This passion may manifest itself in a number of ways. You might want to find new ways to deliver business value to your clients. You might want to find new ways to facilitate user-sessions. You might be a vocal-blogger. You might be passionate about getting the best out of your teams. You might just want to find out what working with like-minded people feels like, and see if that ignites your passion for IT again.
