I am working in my curent job with standard job duties not being expanded a lot since two years. How do people get to maintain their skills if their jobs do not provide enough apportunities to use them. When I joined, I had strong background in urban design and GIS. I was also ok with writting and analystical skills. But after 6 months of employment, all I am using is my writting, communication and some analytical skills. I guess people do consulting outside along with their regular jobs to maintain their skills?
