At the beginning of every year, some specific skills are identified, by some top organisations, to be the most sought after skills that will remain constant, all through the year, based on the trajectory in growth of the skills and the impact it will make.

These skills may be hard, or, soft, but they are, definitely, going to be the most in-demand skill sets.

The year 2020 is still new, but the predictions are already rolling in.

A lot of skills have been touted, to stand out, this year, but according to the professional social media network, LinkedIn, Blockchain will be the most sought after hard skill, in 2020.

A few days back, LinkedIn released a post, which stated that, the demand for blockchain, will surpass the demand for Artificial Intelligence, Business Analysis, UX Design, Analytical Reasoning and Cloud Computing, (which was dominant in 2019), in the year 2020.

According to the report released, by the platform, “Blockchain has emerged from the once, shadowy world of cryptocurrency, to become a business solution, in search of problems which means that you don’t have to be in financial services to be seeking new hires who have background and expertise in putting blockchain to use”, according to a report released recently, by the social media network.

The result of this study was based on systematic research that was defined, by accessing the skill sets that were in high demand, versus their supply.

The demand was measured, by identifying the skills listed, on people’s LinkedIn profiles, who were employed at the highest rates.

The report, also, stated that, the potential of blockchain technology is massive, in terms of providing cost and time-efficient, secured and decentralized methods of tracking different types of transactions.

It stated that, a number of high-profile firms, such as IBM, Oracle, JPMorgan, Amazon and Microsoft have, already, started implementing blockchain technology.

Finally, the report advised all recruiters, (globally), to start delving into the blockchain technological trends and start maximizing the potentials that the technology presents.
