internship for international students in spain

What are the most In-demand Skills in 2021

LinkedIn recently released a list of most in-demand jobs in 2021 and we wanted to focus on the skills undergraduate students can master in order to be recruited for these roles. We are living in uncertain times, the pandemic has had an impact on the way companies are recruiting – with many positions that earlier required one to be physically present turning remote, companies are getting applicants from around the world – thereby tremendously increasing competition. Acquiring key skills that companies are on the look for and completing multiple internships during your time at college are no longer a choice for the driven but a must for all.

Most in-demand skills to master in 2021

Digital marketing skills

Digital Marketing roles saw a rise of 33% year-over-year and was the fastest growing space of all! 94% of all hires had a bachelor’s degree in information technology, computer applications or came from a business studies background. Recruiters seem to prefer students with basic coding knowledge.

The below skills along with basic requirements for the position will enhance your recruitment chances and give you an edge:

  • Scripting/markup (e.g. HTML, XML, Ruby)
  • Javascript
  • C
  • Python
  • Google/Facebook Ads Certifications
  • Data analytics

Specialized engineering skills

Hiring for these roles grew by 25% year-over-year. There was a time when engineering meant civil, mechanical or electrical but the truth is many of the roles engineering students are being recruited for do not require them to have an engineering degree, rather recruiters are looking for some very specific skill set! Jobs in the field of game development, web development, and front-end development are seeing the most growth.

The below skills are being looked at by recruiters:

  • Front-end development
  • Designing and using API’s
  • Programming fundamentals
  • Full-stack development
  • Object-oriented programming
  • Mobile development
  • Server-side programming
  • Automated testing
  • Blockchain specialist
  • Cloud native development
  • Cybersecurity

User experience professionals

Hiring in this space grew by 20% year-over-year. These roles over the last few years have combined design thinking and technology. More and more students interested in design are now learning programming skills and students with a background in coding are acquiring key designing skills. Jobs like User Experience Designer, Product Design Consultant, User Interface Designer, and User Experience Researcher have an incredible demand.

Skills that recruiters are looking for in this space are:

  • Web design
  • Interface design thinking
  • User Experience Testing

As you can see many of the skills the most in-demand jobs of 2021 require are yet not fully taught in all colleges. Very few courses focus on interface design, web design or train you to become a full stack developer. This is where LEAP can help you find the best programs in Spain and help you with your admission and application process. We work closely with over 30 private and public universities – get in touch with a LEAP expert today.

Thank you so much LEAP! I could not have done it without you. The bureaucracy of Spanish public universities is... overwhelming and they reply only in Spanish. The leap team has helped me to manage all the paperwork and legalization processes in time and get acceptance for my master. Looking forward to start the program!read more

Thank you Tom Miessen and LEAP team!! From the perspective of a parent of a future student in Spain, I can say without... hesitation LEAP has been the key my daughter needed to unlock her Spanish undergraduate education dreams. I admit I was skeptical of many things at first, but Tom patiently explained everything. Even in these uncharted COVID times, LEAP was able to keep the beacon shining! Without LEAP we would have been absolutely lost. As a humble suggestion to the parents of those moving ahead with their dreams of study in Spain, let your young adult do everything. It can be frustrating to want to jump in and help, but over this time of planning and action we have seen our daughter mature greatly and overcome difficulties that will no doubt help prepare her for this part of her journey in life.read more

I got in contact with LEAP late August not expecting much from my consult, however after sitting down and talking with... them about wanting to go to Spain and my personal situations, they quickly and effectively were able to give me a personalized plan/proposal with what my study in Spain would look like. Any obstacle I faced they were always a quick text away and readily available with a realistic solution or an alternative. After receiving my proposal I immediately decided to start working with them, a month later I received my visa and was on my way to Spain. The process was quick and not as difficult because I was working with them. Honestly this experience would not be possible for me without their assistance and guidance every step of the way. Thank you!! :)read more

LEAP’s services are totally worth it and highly recommended. They have been amazing by helping me throughout the whole... process, supporting and explaining me all the steps to get my NIE and Social Security Number done in time. I also want to underline the extra effort they made to accomodate as much as possible my requests when getting the NIE appointment. They have always been not only competent but also kind and patient with me. I couldn’t have done it so smoothly by myself, thank you!read more
