The development and incorporation of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has rapidly increased over the past few years. If you are in a job that has been or has the potential to be affected by AI, or if you are looking to go into a job that incorporates AI, these skills will be helpful for you to learn and build upon in the coming years as AI accelerates.
Where AI Comes Into Play
Industries in which AI can be integrated include health and education, both private and public companies, human resources and marketing, and government positions. AI roles can include Analysts, Developers, Engineers, and Technicians.
What You Need
Most AI roles require a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, Business, Statistics, Economics, or Computer Science. With these degrees, you will often times acquire the minimum experience needed, but for additional experience, our expert recruiters encourage candidates to do their own research and teach themselves shortcuts, tips, and tricks within Excel, and other programs they are already comfortable with. While mastering these programs, don’t forget the importance of networking. As mentioned, the majority of industries are incorporating AI into their strategies, so you never know who might present your next opportunity for a job or chance to get more learning experience!
What You Can Do
If you are already out in the field and getting hands-on experience, it may be beneficial to look into online courses related to analytics, web development, or engineering. Another way to stay up to date with the constantly changing digital marketing world is to read. Whether you are reading research published by an engineering firm, or a recent article from the New York Times, staying current on the latest trends is critical.
