LinkedIn has analysed all of the hiring and recruiting activity that occurred on its site in 2015, and uncovered the 25 hottest skills in 14 different countries.
According to LinkedIn’s findings the two hot skills are ‘cloud and distributed computing’ and ‘statistical analysis and data mining’. If you want to get hired in France, India or the United States, then you should focus on your cloud and distributed computing skills.
But if your dream job is in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Netherlands, South Africa, United Arab Emirates or the United Kingdom, then focus your statistical analysis and data mining skills.
Sohan Murthy, data analytics and strategy researcher at LinkedIn, said in a press release: “If your skills fit one or more of these skills categories (a grouping of related skills), there’s a chance you either started a new job or attracted the interest of recruiters last year.
“We noticed that companies were still recruiting and hiring for these skills well into the final months of 2015, so we expect these skills will remain in-demand in the early part of 2016. This means if you have one or more of these skills, you’re likely to continue getting interest from recruiters in the new year.”
