How should you prepare for the LinkedIn Emerging jobs
From an IT professional’s point of view, these Emerging roles are a gateway to Career growth.

But to grab these Emerging job roles, you might have to learn new skills. 

And before you invest in learning a new skill, it makes sense to check if the new role and the new skills are aligned to your current experience and skill set. Isn’t it? 

Leveraging the current work experience and planning Career growth on top of it by learning new skills is a better strategy rather than jumping into a new domain where you are a newbie. Of course, leveraging the current work experience might not be possible in all cases. 

Still, it makes sense to check if there is possibility as the ROI is better by leveraging current skills and work experience.

To help you check the skill fitment and help you plan your Career growth, we have considered the IT technical jobs world and overlaid the LinkedIn emerging jobs on top of it.
