Want to position yourself to be hired? Learn the skills that companies desperately want—but can’t seem to find.
After surveying 1,320 job recruiters at 600+ companies, the 2015 Bloomberg Recruiter Report shed insight into the most desired skills by industry and by scarcity.
Here are the skills everyone is seeking—and the in-depth, watch-anytime courses to help you learn them.
These aren’t the most popular majors in college, and in fact, they’re often absent from formal education—but they form the basis of a well-documented skills gap that recruiters are hot to fill.
Our goal at lynda.com is to help you chart a personal learning journey to reach your career goals and at the same time to guide you through the day-to-day pain points you’ll have as you reach for new opportunities, change jobs, ask for raises, and grow your influence.
Thinking about getting a MBA but light on the $150,000? Check out our MBA starter kit, which gets you going with accounting, finance, marketing, strategy, executive leadership, and communication.
The landscape of employee development is changing dramatically, and cultivating new job skills in real time is the key to standing out in a crowded market. Your abilities to play well in the sandbox, lead others, solve problems, and drive a business forward come from making a daily habit of learning and growing.
While it’s going to take some time and practice to become a pro at emotionally intelligent leadership or competitive strategy to scale globally, we have a number of courses to get you started. Good luck; our team is rooting for you!
