Indeed's "AI at Work Report" Finds GenAI will Impact Almost Every Job in America
Indeed, the world's #1 job site and a leading hiring platform, today released Indeed's AI at Work Report, providing an in-depth look at how GenAI (generative artificial intelligence) will impact jobs and the skills needed to perform them. Led by Indeed Hiring Lab, a team of global economists, the research finds that all U.S. jobs on Indeed - from truck driver to software engineer - have skills that can be done or augmented by GenAI. However, only 1 in 5 (19.8%) of jobs on Indeed are considered "highly" exposed to GenAI, showing that while this technology can learn to do tasks within a specific job, GenAI is unlikely to fully replace many jobs.
Indeed's AI at Work Report analyzed more than 55 million job postings on Indeed and 2,600 job skills to identify the exposure level (low/moderate/high) GenAI will have on jobs and the skills required to perform them. If GenAI was considered "good" or "excellent" at 80% or more of the skills mentioned in Indeed job postings, that job is considered highly exposed. If it was "good" or "excellent" at between 50% and less than 80% of the skills, the job faces moderate exposure. If GenAI was proficient at less than 50% of the skills, the job is considered low exposure.
Software development jobs face the highest potential exposure, with GenAI "good" or "excellent" at 95% of the skills mentioned in Indeed job postings. Driving jobs, like truck and taxi drivers, face the lowest potential exposure, with GenAI proficient at less than a third (29%) of the skills mentioned. Retail jobs fell in the middle with GenAI being effective at 57.6% of the skills.

Indeed Hiring Lab also published the Indeed AI Job Tracker, which shows a monthly look at the share of AI jobs within all job postings on Indeed, by country and occupational sector.
