LinkedIn data revels the top 15 in-demand jobs in 2021 and the most important skills needed for each position.
A new report highlights the fastest-growing job areas over the past year, which are ranked based on a combination of demand and number of jobs available.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, LinkedIn is shifting the focus of its annual emerging jobs report to emphasize where the opportunity is right now.
Previous editions of this report have focused on job trends over the past 5 years, but the world of work has changed rapidly over the past 12 months.
Before you scroll down to look at the full list – yes, digital marketing is among the fastest growing jobs! As is digital content creation and UX design.
