How to keep your skills sharp

How do you keep your skills sharp if your current position doesn't allow you to take advantage of all of your skills?

Take ownership of your own self-development and skill upgrading by seeking challenging assignments inside and outside of work.

To stay current, consider improving your skills through reading, courses, or even mentoring.

Volunteer - there are many charitable/non-profit organizations that need people to help in leadership positions, fundraising, special events, etc. These types of activities can provide opportunities to demonstrate leadership, sales abilities, organizational skills, etc. This type of involvement can also serve as a great networking opportunity. Volunteer to help out at your place of employment by joining in on cross-functional projects and activities.

Stay informed of new technology, trends, and ideas by reading trade magazines and relevant books, and by attending seminars and workshops.

Consider if your skills are not being used because they might not be up to date. If this is the case then update these skills by taking courses at local schools and colleges for example.

Join relevant industry and professional organizations.

Take initiative by asking for or creating opportunities at work. Ask your manager for additional work.

You may also wish to look for another more challenging job with another employer.
