AI Specialist

LinkedIn published its “Top 10 Emerging Jobs” list on Tuesday and — no surprise — most of them are tech jobs. Coming in at number one is Artificial Intelligence Specialist.

While most of the jobs on the list are tech-oriented, they are not necessarily in the tech business. AI, data science, and engineering are required by absolutely every company, so it makes sense that these are the most popular emerging jobs; they are all required for successful digital transformation.

The average pay for the top jobs is well into six figures. If you’re looking for work, it’s time to up your AI game.

  1. Artificial Intelligence Specialist
  2. Robotics Engineer
  3. Data Scientist
  4. Full Stack Engineer
  5. Site Reliability Engineer
  6. Customer Success Specialist
  7. Sales Development Representative
  8. Data Engineer
  9. Behavioral Health Technician
  10. Cyber Security Specialist
