  4. Digital is becoming integrated into everyone’s job. All communications professionals must learn to be content creators and storytellers that will make audiences engage and share in our social world. With social media, people are able to talk about your brand in places you might not even know exist so it is important to be familiar with different tools and know the value of analysis and metrics.
