How to stay relevant in today’s rapidly-changing job market

As I celebrated my birthday last week, I reflected on the past year. Four unrelated episodes played on my mind: My close relative hasn’t had a full-time job in over a year. He’s well educated, has worked for Fortune 500 companies, and has 20 years of work experience. But despite these, he couldn’t find a suitable opportunity. My friend, the CEO of a mid-sized company, was going through a tough time. Poor market conditions outside his control had brought his company down to its knees.

Amazon hasn’t cracked China’s cloud market. This blockchain startup could

Photo credit: John Voo. For foreign cloud providers, entering China’s market is often more trouble than it’s worth. Not only are overseas firms required to form joint ventures with local companies, but they’re also prohibited from owning or operating certain types of cloud tech and hardware.

Factor in China’s new data localization laws, and it’s no wonder that domestic firms captured more than 80 percent of revenue in China’s cloud industry this…
