PayScale, a US website that focuses on salary, work benefits and compensation data, has released its economic trend report that looks back at 2018 and sets predictions for 2019.
Technology-related occupations dominated its ‘Hottest Jobs in 2018’ list, shown below, comprising the year’s fastest growing job titles.
Full stack software developers saw the largest increase at 572% from 2017. This is largely due to more companies investing in their use of the internet, a progression that is also driving key graphic design skills for 2019.
Community engagement directors and lead graphic designers were not far behind on the chart, with the latter seeing a 234% increase from 2017. Graphic designers can work almost anywhere and fuse art with technology to create finished products.
According to Yahoo Finance, lead graphic designers enjoyed a median pay of US$47,900 in 2018.
Other creative job titles that made the list include motion graphic designers, senior mobile developers, and senior product designers.
