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.
