The top in-demand jobs for 2019

The New 2019 Year has come to our houses. Now it’s time to strike the balance, count the statistics and set new goals. The past year has brought many surprises to us. Some of the careers have grown up, and on the contrary, demand on the others has reduced significantly. Based on these results, analytics are ready to make their predictions as for the job market development in the upcoming year. 

Thus, if you have already made your New Year resolutions and building up a successful career is one of them, we are glad to help you with our recommendations.


Hard or Soft?

Recruiters have mentioned the skills gaps multiple times during the past year. To make you more familiar with a term, it’s a lack of basic skills that employers are looking for in candidates. According to Forbes, most of the conversations about the skill gap rise around some technical jobs, such as data analytics, web-design, software engineer, etc. So be aware, currently, the real problem doesn’t consist of lack of hard skills only. The list of skills with the largest skill gap for 2018 looks like the following:

  1. Communications skills: oral and written communication, presentation and public speaking
  2. Personnel management: people management, team leadership, and supervisory skills
  3. Tools development: C++, Java, Linux
  4. Social Media Management: digital media, social media analysis, SMM strategies
  5. Business management: business development, strategic planning, market analysis
  6. Time management: organizational skills, multitasking, delegation skills
  7. Leadership: team motivation and inspiration, strategic thinking and planning
  8. Graphic design: web design, animation, Adobe Photoshop
  9. Data Science: statistics, data analysis, and forecasting
  10. Web development: HTML and CSS, JavaScript

As you may see, half of the positions of the list are soft skills, which is quite surprising. Recruiters claim the lack of specialists has all the soft skills required for successful job performance. Looks like the professionals pay more attention to the technical qualifications, becoming even overeducated in some areas, but they miss some other important factors. According to the statistics from the job search websites, the candidates who have a strong set of soft skills are hired more often than those with relevant technical competencies. This proves employers are ready to educate their workers if they have good potential and career attributes.
