You may have seen our recent article about the most in-demand jobs in Canada for this year, and we’ve got another work-related roundup today. LinkedIn has just released its list of the top ‘jobs on the rise’ in Canada for 2022, and there are some interesting ones on there.
In order to create the list, LinkedIn looked at jobs that have experienced the highest growth rates over the past five years. Not only did the jobs need to see consistent growth, but they also had to have grown to a ‘meaningful size’ for 2021. Additionally, the list groups together jobs that may have different seniority levels, but feature identical titles on the platform. For example, a ‘Security Engineer’ title could also include being a ‘Cyber Security Specialist’.
