A new investigation by LinkedIn reinforces the importance of technologies in the emerging professions of 2020 in the United States. Specialist in artificial intelligence (AI), robotics engineer and data scientist are the first three positions on the list composed of 15 professions, with telework being an increasing trend.
AI-related work occupies a prominent place in this list and it is cities like New York, Boston and Los Angeles that most welcome professionals in this area. Services related to the Internet, computer software or education are some of the most hired.
Regarding robotics, the document refers to an "on fire" industry, with financial services, industry automation and computer software companies being among the most recruiting. In this case, there was a 40% increase in contracts in the last four years.
At the end of the top 3, the hiring of data scientists is increasing in all industries.
