Before we delve into what the most in-demand hard and soft skills are in 2019, let’s first take a look at the definition of these two skill types. Hard skills are essentially teachable skills and something that is easy to quantify. In contrast, soft skills are people skills and focus on traits and behaviors. Hard skills are things you may learn in school or get a certificate for, while soft skills are harder to assess. That said, don’t overlook soft skills. According to LinkedIn, 57 percent of leaders say soft skills are more important than hard skills. That’s because an employer can teach hard skills much easier than they can teach soft skills. LinkedIn put together a list of the top soft and hard skills employers need most. Below are there findings:

Most in-demand soft skills:

  • Creativity

  • Persuasion

  • Collaboration

  • Adaptability

  • Time Management

Most in-demand hard skills:

  • Cloud Computing

  • Artificial Intelligence

  • Analytical Reasoning

  • People Management

  • UX Design

  • Mobile Application Development

  • Video Production

  • Sales Leadership

  • Translation

  • Audio Production

It’s not surprising that IT roles top the list for most in-demand hard skills however management and leadership roles are also top skills. While the top hard skills will not pertain to every profession, the top soft skills are things everyone can focus on strengthening and improving upon. If you are looking to take online courses, LinkedIn has a Learning Center and there are websites like Udemy that offer soft skills courses.

It’s currently 2:30 am as I’m writing this while eating pizza rolls lol but I wanted to write this to see if anyone else is going through the same problems as me I’m currently scared for the future I’m 15 going to be 16 and idk what I want to do with my life I’m scared because my mom is working hard and lots of shifts to make up for us. I don’t want to disappoint her I want to make it up to her for all the tough times but I just can’t. Because of the corona School has been demotivating for me and I missed lots of days and I’m failing currently which I’ve never did before. Now I’m lost and stuck on what should I do I’m scared my mom will be disappointed and cry because I’m failing but I can’t prevent it Ik it’s my fault but life just seems so stressful now it hurts. I wake up every morning just wondering is it even worth it and hope it will get better soon I get so much anxiety just thinking about the future my only escape to get relaxation is anime and LoFi. Ik I sound like a slacker but believe or not life use to be so simple I was a straight A student then lockdown came and I’ve been failing. I just wanted to vent out somewhere or with someone because everyone I’m close with won’t understand and will laugh at me.
