Being in a state of constant willingness to learn new things is so important in this industry, I agree!

As far as job ads go, I’ve found a trend with many companies lately posting job descriptions that include tons of buzz words, not realizing that the buzz words aren’t aligned with the skillsets they’re actually looking for. I wrote a bit about that happening here: https://medium.com/design-leadership/there-comes-a-point-in-every-designers-life-when-it-s-time-to-look-for-a-new-gig-7e27b5c370b

I completely agree that you need to continue actively searching out new sources for learning and inspiration though! It’s really the only way to be successful in this career, having a lifelong learner mindset.
