Your critical skills develop with technology, with the help of training and experience. SAS professionals frequently need a broad range of skills in order to contribute in the workplace and particularly to succeed in the technological society of the modern century. Critical success factors include assessing your current skills and skill levels, determining what skills are hot (in demand), as well as what skills are not, and identifying where and how to access resources to learn and acquire the necessary skills. As a SAS® professional, the skills you acquire will enable you to embark on rewarding journeys leading to exciting opportunities, projects, and an always increasing way of life.
