Drew Thomas, CCO at digital agency Brolik, says, "I know now that macro trends are more important than micro trends" -- and the faster you learn the difference, the better. "The industry moves really fast, and everyone feels that they'll be left behind if they don't know everything. Taking the time to adopt everything new in tech is nearly impossible, though, so young people should focus on the 'big picture' signs that differentiate solid tech progress from fads." Brian Mitchell, Senior Manager of Product Marketing for data and information management software maker Commvault, thinks that "the Internet of Things and Big Data are hot today, but probably won't be in 15 years. Right out of college is a great time to decide which fundamental technologies are worth learning for the long term."
