“I’m not surprised by these results, and I hope this article is a wake-up call for anyone rejecting AI in their industry or function,” says ResumeBuilder’s resume and career strategist Julia Toothacre. “Employees need to find ways to grow their skills and stay relevant in their field if they don’t want their job to be given to AI.”
The results of the survey also show that 91 percent of companies currently using AI or planning to start using AI in 2024 will hire new employees next year. Of this group, 96 percent say it will be very or somewhat beneficial for candidates to have experience with AI. Likewise, 83 percent say employees who have AI skills will have more job security at their company than those who do not.
