Will AI take over entry-level jobs ?
As I reminisce about my early career days, the rise of generative AI tools has me pondering their impact on Gen Z's career prospects. 👩🎓 👨🎓
While numerous studies have raised concerns about the potential impact, history shows that technological revolutions also create new job opportunities in the long run. “49% of the population has used it, and 51% has never used it.” says Salesforce senior director of product marketing Kelly Eliyahu. For workers without college degrees, adapting to this changing landscape may be challenging and deserves attention from policymakers. Among college-educated workers, AI will prompt employees to acquire new skills, enhancing collaboration between humans and AI. This means that young professionals can perform better in their roles, contributing more effectively to their organizations. 🤼♀️
The future of work may present challenges, but it also offers exciting possibilities. I remain optimistic that the college graduates of tomorrow will find meaningful employment opportunities, even if the landscape evolves. Let's harness generative AI's potential to enhance our capabilities and make the workplace even more engaging and rewarding. 💟
I leave you with one question to reflect on. Will companies need fewer entry-level workers if employees become more efficient by using generative AI tools?
I would love to hear your thoughts on the controversial topic!
