Will Blockchain be the most in-demand hard skill in 2020?

A LinkedIn study lists it at the top, together with Creativity as the top soft skill. AI lost two places on the list.

We’re big fans of blockchain, this study does not 100% reflect our current sales pipeline. We see that demand for AI skills are actually still increasing heavily. Thus AI skills should probably feature higher than the 4th place.

The new study lists hard skills companies need most in 2020 in order of importance as follows:

  1. Blockchain
  2. Cloud Computing
  3. Analytical Reasoning
  4. Artificial Intelligence
  5. UX Design
  6. Business Analytics
  7. Affiliate Marketing
  8. Sales
  9. Scientific Computing
  10. Video Production

On the other hand the soft skills companies need most in 2020 are

  1. Creativity
  2. Persuasion
  3. Collaboration
  4. Adaptability
  5. Emotional Intelligence

Except for Emotional Intelligence, the top four places in the soft skills ranking were unchanged from 2019.
