If you’ve been working in a technical position or in a position that could benefit from the latest technical knowledge, you’ve probably noticed that what you used to know has already become obsolete. As the digital technology is a fast-evolving world, it’s likely that the skills you had when you first started your job may not be relevant to the current market situation any longer. For instance, if you’ve been working for over a year without any additional training, you may not only lack productivity in technical tasks, but your lack of current knowledge might even put the company at risks of data breaches, criminal infiltrations, or even lack of reactivity to new requirements. In other words, you need to keep your skills up-to-date and to ensure that you are warned about the latest market trends, threats and opportunities in your technical area of expertise. The main issue with keeping your skills relevant is the cost: Training doesn’t come for free and not all companies can afford to send their techs on a training day. Below are cost-effective and time-saving alternatives to stay indispensable in your field.
