Gone are the days where workers could comfortably plan to stay in one job, or industry, for their entire career. Research from the World Economic Forum shows that one million U.S. jobs are expected to disappear by 2026 and one-third of U.S.workers could be jobless by 2030 — all due to automation.  In January, LinkedIn analyzed hundreds of thousands of job postings in order to determine which skills companies need most in 2019. They found that employers are actively looking for workers with both soft skills and hard technical skills and matched these skills with free LinkedIn Learning courses. LinkedIn found that the skill employers needed most in 2019 was creativity, so it makes sense that the course that became most popular among workers in January was called “Creativity Bootcamp.” According to LinkedIn, 77,182 people took the course in January alone, and 183,273 have taken it overall.
