AI Specialist Tops LinkedIn’s Emerging Jobs List in 8 Countries

Tech’s dominance among emerging jobs is no surprise since even non-tech companies are now looking to hire people with tech skills like Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and data-related expertise.

On December 10th 2019, LinkedIn announced that AI specialist topped the third annual Emerging Jobs Report list in eight countries, and made the top 10 in five other locations. Also, robotics engineers scored the highest in nine countries, and cybersecurity specialists and data-experts showed up on multiple lists across the globe.

IT Hiring Set to Stay on the Growth Track in FY21

According to recruitment professionals tracking the sustained uptick in entry-level jobs, India’s tech sector will increase its hiring by 10% in the next financial year. Industry experts said that the $177 billion IT and business process management sector is forecast to hire 200,000 engineers and graduates in the next financial year. And India’s top five IT service companies – TCS, Infosys, HCL Technologies, Wipro and Tech Mahindra are expected to account for more than 40% of the industry’s total recruitment in the fiscal year 2021.

However, the increased hiring is unlikely to reflect in higher headcount within IT services companies that are going through a sustained phase of both voluntary and involuntary attrition among mid-level employees.

Wipro’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Saurabh Govil said that there is no growth for middle managers who are unable to reskill in digital technology. Professionals with more than 15 years of experience may find it difficult to remain at their posts within major tech services companies unless they upgrade with technology.
