Career growth requires that you build skills that are desirable to employers. To figure out which skills employers value most, take a look at the macro trends affecting work as well as the micro trends affecting your discipline.
Technology has been displacing or evolving skill sets for centuries. (Printing press, anyone?) The invention of the internet ushered in a new era in the news and media space, with digital publishers eclipsing printed publications.
Automation and robotics changed jobs in the manufacturing and construction industries — or made them obsolete altogether. The advent of IoT (internet of things) and smart devices shifted the skills required to monitor and maintain everything from water wells in Africa, to oxygen tanks in hospitals, and thermostats in houses.
