This IDC white paper presents research that forecasts the skills and competencies that will be most in demand around the world by 2024. Many of these are "soft" skills that are in demand in nearly all occupations, but these skills will be in particular demand in jobs that are forecast both to enjoy high
growth and to be well above the median in salary potential.
This white paper analyzes the job and skill requirements from 5.4 million job postings for six representative high-opportunity jobs from the calendar year 2015 across seven separate countries: the United States, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, India, Australia, and Brazil. The six jobs identified were math and science teachers, management analysts, computer and information systems managers, first-line construction and trade supervisors, nurse practitioners, and solar photovoltaic installers. We chose these positions because they represent a wide variety of positions and because they could be considered representative of the types of positions that will grow annually through 2024.
