Significant changes over the past decade and more have challenged the traditional scholarly publishing business model and forever changed the requirements for roles in our industry. For those who started their careers before or at the nascence of these factors, acquiring new skills is required to stay on top of the rapidly changing paths for career development. This seminar will discuss the new skills that publishers now look for over and above the ‘core’ skills, in both new hires and for promoting from within, where publishers go to get them, how they attract from outside the ‘core’ publishing market, and what mid-career publishing professionals can do to acquire these skills and expand their future opportunities.
