AI, administrative skills top fastest-growing online staffing jobs report

July 10, 2019

Fast growth in jobs with artificial intelligence or administrative skills ranked among the top trends in a study of online jobs by Freelancer.com using data from its online staffing platform.

Freelancer.com’s report, the “Fast 50,” included data from 433,000 jobs posted on the site in the second quarter.

“There are a couple of fascinating trends in this quarter’s Fast 50 report,” Freelancer.com Chief Executive Matt Barrie said. “The first is the enormous demand for any skill relating to artificial intelligence and machine learning. The potential applications for machine learning technology seem limitless, and we expect demand in this area to continue growing.”

Barrie said the second trend was the move by large companies toward leaner workforces as evidenced by the number of administrative skills among the fastest-growing jobs.
