If you are caught Napping, you cannot obviously name who still ascends the throne of Technological pinnacle! However, LinkedIn has got your back.
For this report, LinkedIn surveyed more than 50 million of its members in India, who had specified their work experience on their profile details. Following this, it segmented and clustered what seems like, millions of user-input job titles on the basis of common job roles. The report is based on an analysis of data collected between 2013 and 2017.
Again this survey let several things off the hook. It revealed that even across sectors like pharma and banking, there’s an upsurge in the demand for tech jobs and hence, the high demand for talent for specific roles.
Furthermore, the LinkedIn survey suggests that the country’s vision for change will only be achieved by swift pliancy to change. That appears to be the key to govern more than five million people who are all systems go when it comes to joining workforce each year.
This shows that the country’s job market is making a fundamental transit from conventional engineering jobs to more sophisticated skill-set requisites. With this survey, roles like Software Engineer and Senior Business Analyst seems past one’s prime!

Did you see the big “NO” wavering around, by LinkedIn? If not, briefing the already loud antonym isn’t that difficult.
This report further elucidates the fact that although technical roles dominate the space, it isn’t limited solely to tech companies.
