10 Common Reasons People Get Fired



2. Lack of Skills and Education

Without the proper skills and education, nobody can expect to have rock-solid job security, especially in today’s knowledge-driven and digital-dependent era of business. You also cannot rely on the skills and education of the past, because as time goes on those may become obsolete. Just consider, for example, all the people who were laid-off from their jobs installing landline telephones, when those were almost all replaced by mobile phones. The key is to be a lifelong learner and stay current with trends and with the specific marketable skills that are relevant today and will matter most in the future. Ways to do that include online learning, taking advantage of company-sponsored workshops and classes, and – if necessary – returning to school to update your skills for a stronger resume.
