Linkedin has just launched the results on its latest market study, giving favorable results for digital professionals with technological profiles. The labor market is evolving very rapidly so that active and constant training is necessary so as not to be left out.
New trends in job offers are setting the guidelines to continue to remain competitive at the professional level.
Most demanded professions
Another figure that is being spoiled is also that of the software engineer. A complete profile that combines design, production, and programming with computer engineering facing the constant innovation of products and services.
On the other hand, the demand for computer and digital security specialists continues to rise. Both careers are in a period of constant development, attending to the new business needs in regards to showing transparency towards clients.
According to the report, for two years now, the market demands new social skills in these new professional profiles to be noticed in a job offer. Beyond the traditional communication skills for correct teamwork, it now also emphasizes the way in which the professional represents the company abroad. That is, how their personal brand in the world reflects as an ambassador of the company. It is also a tendency for more ‘mathematical’ profiles to be requested: analytical, entrepreneurial attitude and business vision.
More ‘freelance’ contracts and increased teleworking
Nobody marries anyone anymore. Large companies are already generating agreements with independent professionals, which are requested only for a defined number of projects. Generally, the labor market looks towards entrepreneurs and/or consultants who already have their own professional project. This also leads to the majority of times the development of delegated work is done from home.
The study conducted by Linkedin has only confirmed an open secret: technology training is an investment in the future. It is already a matter of ourselves to think about updating ourselves in our corresponding professional branch or to see if there is still time for reinvestment.
