The report indicates that developer skill requirements are transforming, influenced by AI-augmented tools like Github Copilot, enhancing coding speed.

The data from these learners, accessing Coursera for employment readiness and upskilling, allows the identification of significant skill trends, including the fastest-growing skills in business, technology, data science, AI, cybersecurity, and leadership.

Maggioncalda underscores the importance of equipping individuals with the right skills in a world reshaped by technology, AI, and globalization. Concerns about the preparedness of recent graduates for the workforce are amplified by the rapid advancements in AI and its profound impact on how people live, learn, and work.
