  • Sep 24 2012: I believe that the most important thing is: commitment to your profession, whatever it is and regardless of how humble. Try to be as good as you can be at it. Take pride in it.

    I think it's exactly the same qualities that you would want when you hire someone to fix your car, or provide some other service for you. You would want then to take pride in their work, provide good value for the money you are spending, and you would want them to work in good faith. I believe good companies simply want the same.
