Trends have been changing each day, and while previously doctors and engineers were considered benchmarks of success times have changed now.

Machines replaced jobs that were trending five years ago and robots have gotten after machines — this cycle of replacing is expected to stay for a long.

In order to survive in the professional world, everybody should work on their skills to deal with the transformational times.

CNBC, citing data released by LinkedIn, reported that skill sets for jobs have changed by 25% since 2015 and are projected to shift by 65% by 2023.

Meanwhile, the acceleration of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation has created new opportunities and challenges for workers and companies alike.

LinkedIn recently released its "Jobs on the Rise" list for 2024, a data-backed ranking of the 25 fastest-growing jobs in the United States over the past five years.

According to LinkedIn's data, 68% of the roles on the list did not even exist 20 years ago, including seven of the top 10 jobs.
