Top Soft Skills of 2020

In the past, we’ve often discussed the value and transferability of soft skills (see here for a refresher) and praised their value among those seeking a career change. But did you know that career pivoting among Generation Z is becoming more and more common, with half of all professionals who change jobs moving into different industries altogether? Further, one-fifth of professionals under the age of 24 have already had 4 or more full-time jobs. With so many people changing careers, brushing up on new soft skills is becoming ever more important to the modern job-seeker.

With that in mind, LinkedIn Learning compiled the most sought-after soft skills of 2018 based on their most popular courses.
