The accelerated adoption of technologies and changes in work arrangements in 2020 have accentuated shifts in hiring patterns. Jobs in demand remained in healthcare, IT, business development and sales, but Big Data and digital transformation has resulted in greater demand for data analytics and cybersecurity professionals. Newly created positions also formed a higher share of unfilled jobs in 2020, contributed by organisations’ expansion into new functions, job restructuring and redesign. But employers are still experiencing difficulties in filling some positions, though the proportion of these positions has declined slightly. For PMET positions, employers cited the lack of necessary skills and work experience. Individuals should tap on government initiatives to gain the necessary skills and move into new jobs.
