LinkedIn’s New Tool Can Tell You What Skills Will Be In Demand in The Future

LinkedIn has become a pretty useful resource for people that are trying to create some kind of a professional network, and what’s more is that plenty of individuals have managed to start full fledged careers thanks to this platform. Ever since it was acquired by Microsoft under the leadership of Satya Nadella, LinkedIn has turned into a very important social media platform and its latest tool might cement its place in the world of networking and workplace connections.

This new tool is called the Future of Skills, and its interactive features can enable you to better understand what skills will be more important in any given industry with all things having been considered and taken into account. Most users would be excited because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing you to better understand what skills you need to develop in order to become truly successful, as well as to figure out what fields you should be focusing on in the first place.

The tool allows you to specify what trends you want to see by country, industry as well as the specific role that you are interested in fulfilling. That means that if you want to become a Social Media Manager in Turkey, for example, you can look up the trends that will show you the skills that will be required of such professionals in the coming years!

This can also give you a better understanding how these required skills are changing. Facebook used to be ranked second in the list of important skills for social media managers, but it has fallen by seven places in 2021 which indicates that you might not need to focus on it all that much if you want a job in this field.

The trends that LinkedIn is showing here are based on the skills that employees in these roles, companies and industries have on their profile so they might not be all that comprehensive, but that doesn’t change how useful this tool can be for up and coming people.
