Wondering what skills are needed in the market?

Posted by Rubel Khan on August 13, 2009

We’ve talking a lot about careers and job skills around here lately. I was searching around the Web the other day and came upon a freelance work site that advertises for specific jobs by skills.The number of jobs posted according to technology skills was interesting and I thought I’d share it with all of you. Elance.com is a site where employers can post jobs and contractors can bid on them. If you’d like to know what kinds of projects companies need, this is a great place to browse. If you’ve been thinking about gaining new skills, sites like this might help you decide where to focus your learning. Here’s a partial snapshot from the other day:
