Top Ten Skills Aussie Job Seekers Need In 2016 [Infographic]

Online recruitment agency Search Party has released new data that reveals the top ten skills Australian job seekers need in 2016. If its research can be believed, the skills that are in the most demand this year center around core operations and customer engagement, with creativity and leadership taking a back seat.

Search Party based its findings on the most commonly requested skills from employers in Australia and abroad. The infographic below lists the five base skills and five specialist skills that came out on top. As you can see, it pays to have excellent communication skills with a background in either sales or accounting. The graph also shows how the rankings compare to the UK and US.
