To help members prepare for the new up and coming technology roles, LinkedIn has also added new ‘Skills Assessments’ based on top trending skills so members can showcase their proficiency.

These new additions come at a time when hiring in India continues to recover at a 12 percent year-on-year growth rate in August 2020, as per LinkedIn’s labor market data, but competition for jobs is 30 percent higher than last year.
