LinkedIn’s 2020 emerging jobs report confirms that Blockchain developer, artificial intelligence (AI) specialist and JavaScript developer are the top emerging jobs in India. Blockchain has swiftly risen and the last year’s report said that blockchains led by machine learning engineer, application development analyst, and back-end developers have equally gauged up.

Jobs that have risen


 While most of the emerging jobs in the latest report are tech-led, other roles such as digital marketing specialist and lead generation specialist have also seen significant rise compared to a year ago. LinkedIn defines emerging jobs as roles that have seen great demand in a region. There may not be a large talent pool that holds these jobs, there is a large year-over-year growth of professionals who are hired into these roles, showing the likely demand in the future.
