Impact of AI on Jobs and Your LinkedIn™ Pivot Strategy

Impact of AI on Jobs

The impact of AI on jobs may be good news for some and bad news for others. Have you formulated a LinkedIn™ pivot strategy if you have been affected?

I ran across an article on Bloomberry, written by Henley Wing Chiu, which analyzed five million freelance jobs on Upwork from November 1, 2022, to February 14, 2024, to determine the impact of AI on job markets. 

Suppose you are a writer, translator, or customer service representative. In that case, those jobs have significantly declined due to AI, while roles like video editing, video production, graphic design, and software development experienced growth. 

While some AI tools like ChatGPT and DALL-E are replacing some tasks, they are not yet advanced enough for others, increasing the demand for jobs that require more creativity and expertise.

Where is the positive impact of AI on jobs? The most significant growth was observed in jobs related to developing chatbots, indicating a shift towards integrating AI in customer service roles. 

For a detailed overview, you can read the full article here.

The author analyzed freelance work over corporate jobs due to the slower adoption rate of AI tools by large companies.

If you have expertise in the areas with an uptick in jobs, ensure you are engaged in continuous learning, especially on AI tools. 

As of February 2024, only about 15% of Americans are using ChatGPT, according to Exploding Topics, so don’t get left behind. ChatGPT also has some competitors, so have fun exploring.

Where can you find a treasure trove of AI tools? Futurepedia, of course!

If you are in a role that has been negatively affected and are challenged to find a job, you may have to pivot or reinvent.

You will, therefore, need to re-position yourself on LinkedIn™ for your future career, delete the keywords that are not relevant to you anymore, and add new keywords that align with your career aspirations. 

In other words, you must revamp your resume if you are a W-2 job seeker and optimize your LinkedIn™ profile as a freelancer or if you want to be an employee. 

If you don’t know how to do that, attend workshops for a DIY approach or hire a career coach who can speed things up for you with their expertise. 

The links below will provide you with some additional resources, so check them out. Don’t the the impact of AI keep you from managing your career.
