Top 25 hottest skills in 2013 - Part 1

30 Dec 13

As 2013 draws to a close, LinkedIn thought it would be interesting to look back at the year that was and try to answer a simple question: “Who’s getting hired and what are they doing?”

The business networking website’s approach involved analysing the skills and employment history of more than 259 million LinkedIn members’ profiles.

Expertise (skills) and experience (work history) represent the primary components of professional identity on LinkedIn.

If the skills you have on your LinkedIn profile fit one of the categories below, there’s a good chance that you started a new job or were approached by a recruiter about an open position in the past year.

Top 25 hottest skills that got people hired in 2013:

25. Storage Systems and Management

24. Strategy and Strategic Planning

23. Information Security

22. Software Engineering Management

21. PR and Communications
