It seems that every so often, certain skills become most in demand and others fall behind in terms of need. Ironically, it all seems to come in cycles. At one point, we needed teachers and there was a shortage and now we have a fairly saturated field. In time, we will probably need more teachers, and the cycle continues.
The current cycle involves a lot of technological skills as we advance in a tech-era, but don't tear up your Liberal Arts degrees people! This is just one part of a continuous cycle and we will all have our turn to shine again.
Based on multiple reports gathered, these seem to be the re-occurring top five skills in demand this year and may continue to stick towards the top of the list for years to come.

Again, the list goes on, but most of the top 10 fall within the technological field. Again, there will come a time when many get into this field and we will need more teachers, writers, etc. but for now we live in a highly technological world and need workers to keep everything running smoothly!
