Last month, LinkedIn released its emerging jobs report, which identifies the most in-demand jobs and skills, predictions for the future job market, and the jobs that are being replaced the most. One of the report's key findings is that soft skills will be essential for all emerging jobs. While tech-centric roles dominate the list, soft skills remain important across the board, regardless of occupation. Hiring managers in particular seek out soft skills such as leadership, culture fit, growth potential, and collaboration. The report also found that “future-proofing skills is critical,” especially as many professionals feel their skills will be outdated over the next few years due to a lack of consistent training in necessary skills to keep pace with the ever-changing jobs landscape, particularly with the creation of new occupations that didn’t exist a few years ago. LinkedIn’s report further details career paths for workers in the top five emerging roles, most crucial skills for those roles, the rise of freelance workers, and more.
