The world is evolving at a pace where things that were trending a day ago, are a thing of the past today and it wouldn’t be a lie to say the same about jobs.
Jobs that were “in” five years ago are not relevant anymore as humans got replaced by machines and now machines are being replaced with robots.
As a result, the professional world is changing and to stay on top of their game, one must keep up with the skills of the transforming times.
LinkedIn data shows that skill sets for jobs have changed by 25% since 2015 and are projected to shift by 65% by 2030 globally, CNBC reported.
Meanwhile, the acceleration of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation has created new opportunities and challenges for workers and companies alike.
LinkedIn recently released its “Jobs on the Rise” list for 2024, a data-backed ranking of the 25 fastest-growing jobs in the United States over the past five years.
According to LinkedIn’s data, 68% of the roles on the list did not even exist 20 years ago, including seven of the top 10 jobs.
Here is a list of the top 10 fastest-growing jobs:
