LinkedIn recently shared the results of one of its latest surveys, entitled “Jobs on the rise”. To identify those jobs, the experts looked at the roles experiencing the highest year-over-year growth between April and October 2020.

1. Professionals on the frontlines of e-commerce: “Retailers and logistics companies onboarded thousands of e-commerce workers to help get products from the store into the hands of customers. Hiring for these roles grew 73% year-over-year. That demand continues with over 400,000 open jobs right now”.

2. Loan and mortgage experts: “The combination of historically low interest rates and the rollout of the Paycheck Protection Program loans has kept loan experts busy this year — and sent many companies on the hunt for even more. Hiring for these jobs in 2020 increased nearly 59% from 2019”.

3. Health care supporting staff: “These people help usher patients through the health care system, keep records in order for doctors and much more. Since 2019, hiring for these positions has increased more than 34%”.

4. Business development and sales professionals: “Businesses were tasked with quickly adapting to an uncertain world and economy. While some jobs were lost, others that could help bottom lines and help businesses navigate through the pandemic were added”.

5. Experts in workplace diversity: “Companies — large and small — turned to diversity experts who could help them bring new voices into their organizations. Hiring for these roles increased more than 90% since 2019”.

6. Digital marketing professionals: “People stuck inside due to the pandemic turned to the internet for entertainment, meaning businesses were eager to get their products and services on their screens”.

7. Nurses: “Nurses are the backbone of the health care system and they’re obviously in demand as the world navigates its way back from the darkest days of the pandemic. Organizations are looking for nurses to serve in long-term care facilities, schools, urgent care centers and more”.

8. Education professionals: “Few systems were tasked with more in 2020 than schools and universities that had to quickly rethink how they operate and educate”.

9. Digital content creators: “As the world sheltered in place, many turned online for entertainment and connection — and countless streaming and social platforms stepped up to fill the demand”.

10. Professional and personal coaches: “The seismic events of 2020 caused many people to reevaluate the direction of their careers, lives and so much more. Many reached out to people who could help them chart a new course for themselves or their business”.

11. Specialized engineers: “Most business and casual interactions moved online during the height of the pandemic. The technology that enables these conversations require highly specialized people to create it and keep it running”.

12. Mental health specialists: “In addition to the physical health and economic costs of the coronavirus, the pandemic caused a mental health crisis. Counselors, therapists and other mental health specialists were tasked with helping people who felt isolated or worried about their safety”.

13. User experience professionals: “Demand for people who specialize in how people interact with these technologies grew as millions of people turned to the internet and their devices to be entertained, connect or shop”.

14. Data science specialists: “Organizations big and small need experts who can make sense of the data and learn from it. The pandemic may have made some businesses lean more heavily on data scientists as they navigated an increasingly uncertain world”.

15. Artificial intelligence practitioners: “The profession of artificial intelligence (AI) was booming well before the pandemic hit the economy. Many companies looked to AI as a way to keep up with increased demand during the pandemic. Others investigated AI as a way to safeguard their business from future disruptions, too”.
