Stay on Top of In-Demand Skills with New Notifications

December 8, 2017

While it’s estimated that 65% of children entering primary school today will ultimately hold jobs that don’t yet exist, staying on top of emerging skills can help you prepare for the changing workforce. Learning new skills and highlighting your strengths can help you connect to new opportunities, regardless of what industry you work in.

To give you more insight into in-demand skills so that you can stay ahead of the curve, we’re rolling out a new monthly notification that suggests relevant trending skills among people with your same job title. If you already have this skill, consider adding it to your LinkedIn Profile -- skills are one of the top ways that recruiters search for candidates on LinkedIn, and those with five or more skills on their profile are discovered up to 27 times more in searches by recruiters.
