Click through for this year's top 10 skills that are going the way of the dinosaur, as identified by John Hales, a Global Knowledge instructor.

IT is a very fast changing industry - what is hot today may be a tiny niche market in only a few years and things that few have heard of may be huge trends in the same timeframe. There are many new technologies on the way, and that means opportunities for those who watch the coming trends to prepare themselves early on, and thus have experience when the demand picks up. There are many articles devoted to what is hot in the IT industry today, so we won't rehash them here. Instead, Global Knowledge has focused on skills that are going away. If these skills are all you have, you may soon find yourself in an unemployment line. If these skills are the most recent ones you have, NOW is the time to update your skill set and prepare for the future.

This year's top 10 skills that are going the way of the dinosaur (in no particular order) include the following.
