Well, it's the end of the year, so wouldn't you know that they've published the top 10 most-wanted IT skills for the year along with their results for December. If you're job hunting --online or the traditional way -- this is a good list to check out.
The top 10 IT skills for all of 2009 include: PHP, HTML, CSS, WordPress, MySQL, AJAX, and Adobe Flash.
And here's the Elance top 25 for December:
- Article Writing
- Graphic Design
- Content Writing
- Adobe Flash
- Web Content
- Data Entry
- Admin Assistant
- Creative Writing
- Internet Marketing
- Business Writing
As you can see, the list is an interesting mix of generalized skills (like writing, editing, and admin assistant) with specific skills, like PHP and XHTML. And I remain as confused as ever about Elance's bizarre distinction between different kinds of writing, like "article writing" and "content writing." But if nothing else, this list can give you a good indication of what sorts of skills are in demand and what you might want to brush up on -- or reorder in your resume. Check out the complete top 100 at Elance.
