The 25 hottest skills in demand in 2013 by LinkedIn

by kyna-admin on January 7th, 2014

Professional networking site LinkedIn recently released a list of the 25 hottest skills that got people hired with in the past year.

The site came up with its list by grouping the thousands of skills people list on their LinkedIn profiles into general categories (i.e., “press releases” into “public relations”). From there, it analysed which skills drew the most interest from employers based on hiring activity (members who changed jobs in 2013) and recruiting activity (searches put out by recruiters).

The results suggest that we live in a data-driven world and that businesses seem to be growing and expanding, since skills like “recruiting” and “business development” land among the top 10.
