How To Stay Relevant In The Rapidly Changing World of Work

As the world of work continues to evolve, staying relevant becomes much harder. By the time we graduate college, many of the skills we learn become out of date. New technologies are emerging all over the place and businesses of all shapes and sizes are being disrupted. So as a current or prospective employee, what can or should you be doing to make sure that you can stay relevant? This is exactly what I talk about in the latest episode of the #futurein5. I share 3 things that we can all do to make sure to make sure we stay ahead of the curve. We can no longer rely on educational institutions or our companies to teach us all of the skills we need to know. The three tips are: 1) leverage online education platforms; 2) use social channels and create filters to stay on top of current and relevant information; 3) participate in communities that are relevant to your interests and passions. As a 4th bonus tip we should all remember to leverage old-school networking and reading the news!
