Millions were laid off from their hospitality jobs around the world over the past year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while the demand for healthcare workers and e-commerce frontliners skyrocketed. As everyone transitioned to digital and to remote work, the need for data analytics and digital content creators spiked.

Just as the idea of work is not what it used to be, neither are the careers and jobs available for those seeking opportunities. LinkedIn has analyzed millions of job posts and information on its platform, uncovering the up-and-coming roles that have grown in demand in the last year. The data was sourced from its wide database of companies, most of which are based in the U.S., so these trending jobs will likely reflect the demands of the U.S. job market, which could be useful information for the Filipinos planning to migrate there.
