Over the years, you have probably encountered a number of colleagues and employees who are looking to move up to the next rung on the career ladder in IT. Perhaps they have been in the same position with their employer for a number of years and are looking for new challenges. Or perhaps they have been putting themselves out there for a promotion, but keep getting passed over and aren’t sure why.
