High-Paying Jobs in India: The Top 25 Skills Most in Demand

At the beginning of the new year, many professionals would be contemplating about a job change. Or even a new career. But what skills are employers looking for?

Professional networking website LinkedIn collated the hottest skills that helped people land better jobs in 2015. Sohan Murthy, data analytics and strategy researcher at LinkedIn, in a blog post said, "We noticed that companies were still recruiting and hiring for these skills well into the final months of 2015, so we expect these skills will remain in-demand in the early part of 2016."

"This means if you have one or more of these skills, you're likely to continue getting interest from recruiters in the new year."

LinkedIn came out with a list of 'Hottest Skills of 2015' based on hiring and recruiting activity seen on the networking website in the past year (January 1 to December 1, 2015). As expected, IT skills dominated the list.


In 2015, new skill areas - corporate law and governance, military and defence and automotive services, parts and design - featured in the LinkedIn list. They were not listed in 2014. Electronic and electrical engineering jumped 14 places in the 2015 list as compared to 2014 while user interface design rose by 7 spots. Among notable drops, social media marketing slipped 11 spots in 2015 list as compared to that of 2014.

1. Cloud and distributed computing
2. Statistical analysis and data mining
