LinkedIn Says ChatGPT-Related Job Postings Have Ballooned 21-Fold Since November
17 Aug 2023
When Evanston, Illinois-based Darren Angle was in talks to join biotech research startup Prism Analytic Technologies in May, “head of AI” wasn’t even a position yet.
“We were trying to come up with a title,” says Angle, a software engineer who previously worked on artificial intelligence at Shopify and now, as the startup’s “head of AI,” builds large language models for pharma companies and scientists. “It was sort of like, ‘let’s figure out what the role is going to be.’”
Now, there are a lot more of those positions, and titles for them are coming into view. According to new data released Tuesday in LinkedIn’s Future of Work report, the share of global English-language job postings on the platform mentioning GPT or ChatGPT has increased 21 times since November 2022, when OpenAI first released its AI chatbot into the world.
