Leading technology authority Tech.co has revealed that entry-level admin roles are most at-risk of AI job replacement.
A recent Goldman Sachs report predicts AI could replace the equivalent of 300 million full-time jobs and employees are now questioning the stability of their own role against the power of artificial intelligence.
Over two-thirds of employees even hide the fact they use it from their bosses.
What are the top 10 jobs most likely to be replaced by AI?
Having spoken with a range of AI experts and entrepreneurs, Tech.co has identified the following top 10 roles that are most vulnerable to artificial intelligence job replacement:
- Entry-level admin roles
- Data EntryClerks
- Software engineers and coders
- Customer ServiceReps
- Copywriters and content roles
- Graphic Designers
- Bankers and Accountants
- Fact-checkers and proofreaders
Entry-level admin jobs are at risk of AI
Entry-level administrative roles were found to be the most at-risk of being replaced by AI tools, as they consist of tasks that can already be competently performed by ChatGPT, such as writing summaries and managing spreadsheets.
Since the rise of ChatGPT, businesses have continued to discover new ways to leverage AI tools for fast and efficient problem-solving. A 2022 Gartner survey found that 80 percent of executives in the private sector thought AI could be applied in “any direction”, suggesting no stone will be left unturned when it comes to automation.
Some project management software providers are already working on plans to harness artificial intelligence to streamline project management. For example, you can now join the waitlist to use ClickUp’s new AI tool, which will help users with tasks like writing proposals and drafting emails. Until the dawn of AI, this would have typically been a job carried out by employees. Now, this task can be completely automated
Tech.co’s lead writer, Aaron Drapkin, comments:
“The AI revolution is here, and if companies don’t start upskilling their staff to keep up with these changes, they risk their business being left behind. Major changes aren’t going to happen overnight, but if you’re worried about your role being replaced by AI in the next few years, expanding your soft skills – and getting comfortable using the latest AI chatbots and other tools – is a good way to start”.
