There’s a need — almost a demand — in today’s global economy for blue- and white-collar workers to remain competitive by reinventing themselves one or more times during the course of their careers. For example, marketing communications practitioners must be skilled in writing, computer and mobile apps, web design, social media, ecommerce and graphic design to keep up with the winds of change. College programs cover the basics, but individuals are obligated to continue their education long after the graduation ceremony. Employees and employers in other industries, and even the mega industries themselves, are similarly challenged. Auto mechanics must study the sophisticated on-board technologies loaded into late-model vehicles; flooring companies need to stay on top of a growing selection of tile, carpet, laminate and wood products; and the tech industry is driven 24/7 to remain relevant.
