There's a new buzzword that's changing the way employers reward, promote, and hire. It's skills. Instead of 'who do you know?' or 'where did you go to school?', the question is, 'what can you do'?
Skills, and keeping them sharp, are key to helping you stand out, stay competitive, and ultimately, future-proof your career.
We compared the top skills professionals had in 2015 to those they have for the same job today to see just how much things have changed. Use this data to identify and close any skill gaps in your skill set.
First, we'll share the top skills LinkedIn members added to their profiles across all professionals, broken out into two sets of skills: soft skills, and hard skills. These are the skills that can help you land your next opportunity. These 20 skills were listed in 78% of jobs posted on LinkedIn in the last three months globally*.
Next, we surface the top skills members added to their profiles in specific areas of expertise, so you can focus on learning the right skills to future-proof your career in your unique job function.
