Last week, the ASBPE National Blog conducted a quick poll on the level of worry B2B editors were feeling about their jobs.

With 2 percentage points separating the Worried but not Stressed and the Terrified, I’d say there’s cause for concern amid B2B editors.

Only three percent reported picking up new skills that could help get a new job if necessary.

What are those skills and how can you worry less about your job? The ASBPE blog will help you through it every step of the way. Stick around and keep checking back often.
