Consider Hiring for These Skills in 2019

Brandon Grysko, Esq.

From an employer's perspective, it is important to track what skills are "trending" in the job market. A savvy employer will use the information to train and reward current employees and to screen and recruit new applicants.

Computer processes and automation are increasingly important in business because they save time and money and increase productivity. But there are just some things that technology cannot do: form personal connections and nurture client relationships, think outside the box, and adapt to new problems.

Taking all of that into consideration, LinkedIn analyzed thousands of job postings and plucked out the most sought-after skills of 2019:

· Soft skills are important for building relationships and problem-solving. The number one soft skill for 2019 is Creativity. Although the rise of automation is great for established tasks, employers need creative people to visualize solutions to new and evolving issues.

· Other important soft skills on the list were Persuasion, Collaboration, Adaptability, and Time Management, all of which are important in a variety of career fields including sales, marketing, and project management.
