According to new research, these four skills are disrupting the job market and offering the biggest opportunities for career growth:

  1. Artificial intelligence and machine learning
  2. Cloud computing
  3. Product management 
  4. Social media

These skills are not only the fastest growing but the widest spreading across industries and job functions.

In fact, in 2021 one in eight job postings required one of these four skill sets and job seekers with these skill sets consistently received higher compensation.

Building the right, in-demand skills put you in the driver's seat in your career.  When planning your career, think more about the skills you are building rather than the specific companies or jobs you want to target.

By finding skills that are both fast-growing and spreading across industries you can find opportunities in fields where needs are emerging but there are still major skills shortages.
