Each year, the skills and knowledge required to perform a job evolve. The types of skills candidates require change as the world and technology evolve. Most talent recruitment firms tend to keep a track of the most in-demand skills that businesses are searching for in job seekers. In the year 2020, a lot of things changed due to COVID-19 and this had a direct impact on the types of abilities employers seek when interviewing candidates. 


There has been a severe need to reskill and upskill individuals in vast numbers, to implement safety nets for displaced employees so that they can move towards the job where they can excel. So, in 2023, which talents would companies and recruiters value the most? We at Docthub will try to answer this question of yours. Let's begin by looking at some of the most important abilities and attributes that companies will be looking for in 2023. 


Technical Skills

Every industry today is heavily dependent on technology. Cloud and machine learning are being used by multiple people while they are unaware of it. Thanks to technological advancements, everything has been simplified as a result, be it simple financial transactions or complex regression models. So, if you're tech-savvy and have a better understanding of technology, you'll have a leg up on the competition in your field. One of your biggest career blunders can be not being tech-savvy and not being able to continually improve yourself through learning. 

As a result, it is suggestive to begin to embrace technology more. 


Interpersonal and Communication Skills 

It's critical to connect with the audience, something that you can do by using your body language and interpersonal abilities. It is the most significant skill for employers and recruiters, as stated at the beginning of this blog. An excellent communicator should be able to open channels of communication within the team, as it results in a better and more integrated effort. 

Interpersonal qualities such as active listening, motivating, and caring, as well as teamwork and leadership abilities, are like icing on the cake when it comes to effective communication. 

It's not a surprise that recruiters consider this skill to be the most valuable in terms of employability. 


Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence (EI) is not a new concept in today's business world. Many companies now conduct EI tests and have begun to place greater emphasis on it than on traditional aptitude tests. In 2023 and beyond, this will be a critical skill for employment. Our workplaces have become multidimensional as a result of increased use of technology, work-life balance, the recent COVID pandemic, gender imbalance, variable pay, flexible working, and other related challenges. 

For leaders and managers, a high IQ is insufficient. The term "emotional intelligence" refers to a multifaceted approach to emotions. Emotional intelligence is all about bettering your knowledge and use of emotions. 


Ability to adapt to change

As previously stated, one of the favored qualities by employers is the ability to adapt to change. Over half of the businesses polled said this will be an essential employability skill in 2023. This appears to be the case, particularly in the context of a pandemic and ever-improving technology and consumer behavior. Adapting to a constantly changing workplace has become critical for managers. 


As a result, most MBA programs now include change management as a core topic. Understanding change and then reacting and adjusting fast to it provides you a distinct advantage over your competitors. 


The following are the key principles of change management

  • Recognizing and Managing Change 
  • Change management and planning 
  • Communicating the changes to others in a clear and concise manner 


Ability to resolve issues

New technologies and innovation bring with them problems and complaints. The consumer black box is growing in size and complexity, making deciphering a consumer's mind increasingly challenging. Back in the day, management consultants were the issue solvers, but in today's world, every team member must be a problem solver in their own right. 

As a result, it's no wonder that the majority of employers consider this quality to be one of the most vital in potential hiring. 


Continuous Learning

Change management, creativity, emotional intelligence, and effective communication will all be impossible for individuals who refuse to learn regularly. Continuous learning is the best way to stay relevant and progress in your profession in today's ever-changing workplace. 


The expanding importance of these professional courses is evidenced by the rapid growth of online learning platforms and professional learning. 


Gone are the days when a handful of skills were all that was required to compete with the best. In today's knowledge economy, you must be willing to learn new skills regularly. 


Adaptability and Flexibility

Adaptability and Flexibility are transferable qualities that can be used outside of the workplace. Flexibility is now more of a necessity than a virtue, whether working in a team or working independently. Adaptability is also essential for managing and surviving in an ever-changing workplace. Because of these factors, this skill is expected to be one of the top ten qualities employers seek in 2023. 


Skills in people management

It should go without saying that a strong understanding of people management is a must for success as a leader in any organization. It is a compilation of all soft abilities, some of which have already been stated in the attributes listed above. These abilities will help you succeed as a manager or leader. People management skills include traits such as trust, patience, active listening, empathy, and a variety of other soft talents.


These abilities are more difficult to identify and assess than technical abilities. As a result, these are attributes that cannot be easily listed on a CV. During the interview, recruiters are taught to evaluate these competencies by asking certain types of questions or sharing an experience. 



Employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders will all face hurdles along the way. Stories aren't about the roadblocks but are about people who bounce through them. Resilience is the art of staying strong in the face of adversity and rebounding from setbacks. This is a trait that has been valued by employers for ages and will continue to be valued by recruiters in the future too. 



The skills listed above are just a few of the many in-demand that we have been seeing in job descriptions and discussions with our hiring partners. Start working on the talents mentioned in the list if you have been wanting to add some new skills to your resume.
