LinkedIn Report: What Candidates Want, What Companies Need, and What’s Changing

Posted 11th October 2021 • Written by •

LinkedIn’s latest report, Talent Market Drivers Since the Start of COVID, aims to help by shedding light on the biggest changes in the job market since COVID-19 began, highlighting:

  • What matters most to candidates and how their priorities are changing
  • How demand for certain roles has skyrocketed since the start of COVID
  • Which skills professionals are learning in order to meet market demands

You might be tempted to think that all these recent changes are only temporary, that once the pandemic is fully behind us everything will snap back to the way it used to be.

But according to LinkedIn’s chief economist, Karin Kimbrough, “it’d be a mistake to focus too much on pre-pandemic norms and assume we’re going back there.” While the supply and demands of the talent market do tend to be cyclical, she says, that doesn’t mean we’ll return to the pre-COVID status quo. “I don’t think we will,” says Karin, whose commentary is featured throughout the new report. “The future is going to be totally different.”

The pandemic won’t be with us forever, but its impact on the talent market will be felt for years to come. Read the full global report here, explore regional versions, or read on below for an overview of what’s changing — and what you can do to make the most of the Great Reshuffle.
