These Are the 20 Fastest-Growing Skills in the Online Job Market

The online job market is a place of fast growing skills. Some are really fast growing and they deserve a mention. Natural language processing is considered the fastest growing. And the 4th one is Amazon Marketplace Web Services (MWS). Instagram marketing is one skill on the list that does not require any technical skills.

Key Takeaways:

  • Freelancers who know natural language processing earned an average hourly rate of $123 per hour, and the total amount that they billed soared by 2300 percent last quarter from a year earlier.
  • Only about 400 freelancers currently list the skill on their Upwork profile, and the fourth quarter was the first time that there was a significant pool of freelancers with this talent, according to the company.
  • The nascent boom in these jobs also foreshadows the employment that advances in artificial intelligence could create, even while they replace other human tasks.
