The Most Indemand Skills Around the World The rapid change in technology, the decline in legacy companies and the accelerating rate of disruption has meant an enormous change in the skill sets required to have a successful career in the future. To determine what employers are looking for, and what it takes to successfully land a job, LinkedIn looked at billions of data points and analyzed all of the hiring and recruiting activity that occurred on its site so far in 2016 to identify the most sought-after skills. Ultimately they uncovered the top 10 skills that can get you hired in 2017 in 14 different countries. While some skills expire every couple of years, LinkedIn data strongly suggests that tech skills will still be needed for years to come, in every industry. Now is a great time for professionals to acquire the skills they need to be more marketable.

1. Demand for marketers is getting lighter While marketing skills were in high demand in 2015, things have changed. This year, SEO/SEM dropped five spots from No. 4 to No. 9 and marketing campaign management dropped completely off the list. Demand for marketing skills is slowing because the supply of people with marketing skills has caught up with employers’ demand for people with marketing skills. 2. Data and cloud reign supreme Cloud and distributed computing has remained in the No. 1 spot for the past two years … . following closely on its heels is statistical analysis and data mining, which

came in No. 2 last year, and No. 1 in 2014. These skills are in such high demand because they’re at the cutting edge of technology. Employers need employees with cloud and distributed computing, statistical analysis and data mining skills to stay competitive. 3. User interface design is what’s hot right now User interface design, which is designing the part of products that people interact with, is increasingly in-demand among employers. Data has become central to many products, which has created a need for people with user interface design skills who can make those products easy for customers to use. So if you are wondering what to do with your life and do not yet have a direction, you should explore learning one or more of these 10 skills.
