COVID-19 has compelled many businesses to change the way they work, giving birth to a range of new skills that will soon shape the future of several job roles. This dynamic situation makes it important for India to develop skilled youth — something that reflects in the core theme of this year’s World Youth Skills Day.

LinkedIn witnessed this renewed focus on skilling firsthand, especially among the youth, as the platform reported a 226% increase in the time spent viewing online courses by students on LinkedIn, in India (Jan-Feb vs Mar-Apr).
