Upwork, which is a website for freelance workers, has published a report which indicated skills that are more and more needed in the freelance job market in the U.S.

The Upwork Skills Index categorizes 20 skills on this website in a quarterly series. It clarifies what new skills are, and offers the chance to see which are current trends in the tech industry and in the market in general. As stated in the report, almost half of the hiring managers are of the same opinion that the increased specialization of skills is interfering with their business.

Stephane Kasriel, the co-chair of the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council and CEO of Upwork, has stated that in San Francisco, Boston, Denver, and San Jose, unemployment is less than 3%. That makes finding qualified workers even harder than before.

She added that as the outcome, employers would depend on non-traditional sources in order to find talented workers, regardless of where they’re living.
