The skills age

The secret to standing out in your job search isn’t just dazzling an interviewer or crafting the perfect follow-up email.


The first step toward landing your dream job is honing your skills. While technical skills are the main criteria hiring managers consider while evaluating a job candidate, soft skills, such as multi-tasking and problem-solving, can also be deal-breakers: An overwhelming majority of employers ― 93% ― say soft skills play a critical role in their hiring decisions, according to ZipRecruiter.

To help jobseekers determine which skills to highlight on their resume, LinkedIn has identified the top 20 skills employers are looking for right now.

Here are the top 10 skills on that list:
  • Customer Service
  • Sales
  • Accounting
  • Business Development
  • Marketing
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Digital Marketing
  • Sales Management
  • Problem Solving
