Emerging Skills for 2020 (India)

LinkedIn released its 2020 Emerging Jobs Report for India few days ago. As a consistent learner, I always want to learn new skills. So, I wanted to list the skills mentioned in the report with emerging Jobs.

However, skills listed here sometimes don’t suffice for the job or just not required. For instance, you don’t have to learn both Node.js and Django to be a back-end developer.

The visualization for the results:

Short Analysis based on word cloud:

  1. Marketing and JavaScript seems to be most popular and both of them are good marketable skill for inspiring freelancer.
  2. LinkedIn tends to favor AngularJS more than ReactJS, exactly the opposite of global trend. I think it’s because Enterprises tend to use AngularJS more often than React.
  3. Javascript is the language of choice if you are thinking about becoming a Web developer.
  4. Automation seems to be the trend of the year. There are many vendor specific skills such as UiPath and Automation Anywhere where certification from vendor should help to break into the Automation field.
