GenAI to impact, not replace U.S. jobs — study

TEXAS, UNITED STATES — A new report from Indeed finds that generative AI (GenAI) will impact many jobs in America, but the technology is unlikely to fully automate entire roles.

The study, titled “AI at Work,” analyzed over 55 million U.S. job postings on Indeed and categorized exposure to GenAI as high, moderate or minimal based on the portion of required skills the technology could perform.

Nearly 20% of postings were considered highly exposed, meaning GenAI could do 80% or more of required skills. 

Software development had the most exposure at 95%, while driving jobs like trucking have the least exposure at just 29%.

However, the report notes GenAI is less likely to replace entire jobs. Instead, it will serve as a tool to augment or streamline tasks. 

Nearly half (45.7%) of postings had moderate exposure to GenAI, and over a third (34.6%) had minimal exposure. This suggests the majority of roles have limited susceptibility to full automation.

Jobs requiring intuition, reasoning, and manual work are less susceptible to automation.

“There’s no doubt GenAI is a powerful leap in technology that will impact all jobs, particularly those within the tech sector, and the labor market as a whole,” said Svenja Gudell, Indeed’s Chief Economist. 

Indeed has pioneered AI-powered hiring tools for over 15 years. The company currently uses AI across over 100 products to improve hiring.
