In my previous blog, I outlined how AI is transforming organizations and creating emerging careers across various dimensions based on the Burke-Litwin change model. I heard from many readers who found this framework helpful for envisioning new career paths and gaining strategic insight into how to prepare.
To further support those interested in actively preparing for the AI-impacted work world, I've enumerated 60 example jobs being created by the AI evolution in a downloadable list. This list is designed to explain each role's basic responsibilities and allow you to map your previous experiences into the best-fit roles for an easy career pivot. Some roll-up observations from this table include:
The breadth of functions represented, from engineering and data analytics to consulting, training and policy, reinforces that AI skills are relevant across many industries and specialties.
Traditional titles are being combined with "AI" to create hybrid roles, like AI Strategy Consultant or AI Business Impact Consultant. This shows how existing domains are integrating new technologies.
Experiences in areas like change management and training and ethics are commonly listed as helpful background for career pivots - reflecting the importance of human-centered skills even for technical/analytical jobs.
Emerging fields like environmental data analysis, AI legal, AI sustainability, and AI sales strategy are represented, pointing to where multidisciplinary skills can be applied.
I hope seeing these concrete career examples is inspiring and gives you a sense of the many pathways available. As a next step, reflect on how your current experience aligns with AI-related roles. Then, identify any new skills you need to develop and pursue relevant learning opportunities over the coming months. With proactive preparation and an open mind, you'll be well-positioned to thrive professionally in the exciting, AI-transformed future awaiting us all!
