These days, it's more important than ever to stand out as an asset to your employer. One way that I've been trying to stand out is by making myself more valuable and learning new skills. For example, I've offered to take on program management for my division to avoid costly outsourcing. My goal is to fill in the gaps and complete the tasks that are most needed right now. So far, it seems to be working in my favor. Looking for others' input - what types of skills are you finding are most needed right now? What other ways are you making yourself more valuable to your employer? Let me also note that I do not think any of us should burn ourselves out, but if we are strategic right now, it can help us keep our jobs and also become better candidates for future roles.
