January is when the largest percentage of LinkedIn users look for a new JOB. So you’re probably asking yourself, “What skills are employers looking for?” Great question! To find the answer, LinkedIn analyzed all of the hiring and recruiting activity that occurred on LinkedIn in 2015, and uncovered the 25 hottest skills in 2015.
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. Companies were still recruiting and hiring for these skills well into the final months of 2015, so it is expected 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.
