Top 15 In-Demand Jobs in 2021
January 19, 2021
The past two years one of the most frequently asked questions I have received is:
What’s the hot job?
In part I think a lot of people are starting to think what is next for them in their career and what do they need to start learning and gaining experience in.
LinkedIn came out with their Jobs on the Rise: 15 opportunities that are in demand and hiring now. They used their data from April to October of 2020.
My feeling is that some of these roles, while still in demand, may fall down the next time they do the survey and are whatever “post Covid” is.
Below are the general categories and then top job titles. You will want to click the link above as LinkedIn has more data including skills, top locations, education, salary range and remote job availability.
