PEOPLE skilled in developing applications for mobile phones and tablets are in hot demand, says online freelancing network Freelancer.com.
Freelancer.com is an "outsourcing" website through which employers can hire freelancers in areas such as software, writing, data entry, engineering, the sciences, sales and marketing, accounting and legal services.
The site has more than three million users.
Freelancer.com yesterday released its survey of online job trends over the first three months of 2012, which included the 50 fastest growing job categories.
"The demand for mobile (application) developers has been insatiable and will continue to grow as more businesses seek to offer their products and services on these platforms," Freelancer.com said in a statement.
