LinkedIn 2018 US Job Report

“The Emerging Jobs Report is our opportunity to take a look at the jobs and skills that are growing most rapidly around the country. So you, as U.S. professionals, can make more informed decisions about your career. Using data from LinkedIn’s Economic Graph, we analyzed the roles that companies are rapidly hiring for, the skills associated with them, and the roles that have emerged over the last five years.” Guy Berger, Chief Economist, LinkedIn.

The report says artificial intelligence (AI) is here to stay. However, AI may on the rise, but it can’t replace humans, basic business functions are surging.


Despite technical roles showing strong, soft skills are the skills with largest skills gaps.

The LinkedIn report is a medium for US professionals and businesses to look at growing jobs and skills.

This report gives small business an insight into the US job market.

Businesses can use the report to make strategies for upcoming trends or competition and to identify the new opportunities, which ultimately helps in business growth.

According to the report, AI skills are one of the fastest-growing skills on LinkedIn with an increase of 190% from 2015 to 2017.

Although AI skill is growing but it doesn’t effort your job, robots aren’t coming for your job.

In this year’s report, the biggest growth comes from blockchain developer (33X growth), machine learning engineer (12X growth), application sales executive (8X growth), machine learning specialist (6X growth), and professional medical representative (6X growth).
