The workplace is a continuous, competitive learning environment even when one feels as if they have exhausted all levels of learning  affiliated with their type of job. 

Several factors make it impossible for one to assert themselves as sufficiently learned and not in need of furthering their education.

Factors such as the emergence and advancement of new technology, new customer and work demands, implementation of new laws and change in workplace leadership all require an employee to continually keep developing their education and keep learning regardless of being at the top of their career.

Continuing to further your education, ensures you maintain your employment status as you are able to conform to the changing times and thus achieving a competitive edge in the job market.
