UpWork releases 20 Fastest growing Freelance skills in Q2, 2019

Upwork.com is the world’s largest and arguably the best freelance marketplace where contractual freelance jobs are posted. The site has a list of huge projects and a great number of expert freelancers from all over the world.

The company releases most in-demand fastest-growing freelance skills every quarter of the year.

“In booming cities like Boston, Denver, San Francisco, and San Jose, the unemployment rate has fallen below three percent, which makes finding qualified and highly-specialized talent more challenging than ever before,” said Stephane Kasriel, CEO of Upwork.

“As a result, for more and more skills, businesses are relying on nontraditional talent sources to effectively engage the best workers, no matter where they live.” Stephane further added.
