Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 30, 2013 12:12 PM

Storytelling in various forms is ranking right near the top of hot careers for 2014. Yeah! This just goes to show storytelling's staying power. It definitely is not a fad or passing trend.


Besides storytelling, the jobs of 'content creator' is all about storytelling. As is 'director of content' and 'content manager'. It's hard to direct or manage content without quality storytelling skills. Otherwise, how do you know you are providing top notch content?


Bottom line: get more training in storytelling! You'll be glad you did :)
