According to recent information from the international job search platform Adzuna, the United States is in the lead for artificial intelligence employment, and many of them easily pay six figures.
According to the Adzuna database, there were 7.6 million available positions in the U.S. in June, with a growing number requiring A.I. expertise: 169,045 positions in the country included A.I. requirements and 3,575 of those specifically requested generative A.I. work.
Tech positions like software engineer, product designer, deep learning architect, and data scientist are among the most prevalent careers. But according to James Neave, head of data science at Adzuna, there is “absolutely a shortage” of suitable candidates for one quickly expanding position: tax manager.
According to him, accounting and consulting organizations increasingly seek to hire tax managers and accountants with the appropriate A.I. skills to use huge language models to increase productivity.
According to Adzuna data, the typical tax manager job using A.I. earns $100,445 per year. Overall, the talent earns $146,244 for the average employment.
Since ChatGPT joined the market in late 2022, the need for A.I. jobs has increased dramatically. Since then, businesses hoping to stay at the forefront of emerging technology have been scrambling to find workers with the knowledge and abilities to create and integrate the technology into their workflows, such as by developing chatbots to enhance customer service or processing vast amounts of data to make business decisions.
In a recent study of LinkedIn’s Top Companies, nearly 70% of respondents said A.I. was already making them quicker and smarter, and another 32% said they anticipated seeing even greater benefits in the years to come. A.I. is being implemented throughout the workflows of Wells Fargo and Kaiser Permanente, while companies like EY specifically designated it as one of their top three hiring priorities.
According to Jay Shankar, vice president of global talent acquisition at Amazon Web Services, “it’s super important skillset employers are looking for, across all industries,” on CNBC Make It in April. Since A.I. is ubiquitous right now, that’s the technological talent you should concentrate on learning, in my opinion.
Online certification and training programs are available from the University of Michigan, Coursera, and other e-learning platforms for those interested in developing their generative A.I. skills.
According to Neave, it might be dependable in a volatile environment with several high-profile tech layoffs. In particular, he advises people searching for high-paying positions to pay close attention to A.I. in the second half of the year.
And it appears that the U.S. is setting the bar for establishing an A.I. talent pool: The United States offered approximately 173,000 open A.I. positions in June, while within the same period, India posted 25,900 jobs, and the United Kingdom listed 16,825.
