It's January, so there's a good chance you're on the hunt for a new job.

According to sites like Monster.com and LinkedIn, this is the most popular time of year for job seekers to kick off their search.

To find out what it takes to successfully land a job, LinkedIn analyzed all of the hiring and recruiting activity that occurred on its site in 2015, and uncovered the 25 hottest skills in 14 different countries.

"If your skills fit one or more of these skills categories (a grouping of related skills), there's a chance you either started a new job or attracted the interest of recruiters last year," explains LinkedIn researcher Sohan Murthy in a recent LinkedIn post.
