Computer skills are becoming more sought after as companies from different industries explore how machine learning can help them innovate old processes, improve user experience, and keep them on the frontlines regarding how they do business.
To find where the most artificial intelligence jobs are located, we collected data based on several factors: the number of full and part-time positions, whether workers had to be on-site or work remotely, the number of jobs available for each experience level (i.e., internship, entry, associate, mid-senior, director, and executive), and the industries with the most availability.
Next, we sourced data from April 2022 on Linkedin, the world’s largest professional network on the internet, to determine which U.S. states and international economies are hiring the most and least in AI jobs. For this study, we researched the top 25 economies in the world according to Investopedia.
- The United States is the LinkedIn hub for IT services and consulting, with 53,352 total job postings on the networking platform. China (23,025) and India (14,383) were the No. 2 and 3 countries hiring the most on the site.
- Mid-to-senior level positions are most common in the industry’s top leading countries, such as the U.S. (13,362), China (7,650), the United Kingdom (3,898), India (1,951), and Germany (1,015). In these countries, hiring managers like to see a robust resume in addition to a solid educational framework.
- Home to the world’s biggest tech hub, Silicon Valley, it’s no surprise that California has the most LinkedIn AI job postings, with over 14,000 across the state. Texas (6,966) and New York (6,249) followed behind.
- 44% of all international AI job postings were for entry-level positions, 36% were for associates, while 20% of postings went to mid-senior positions.
When analyzing the LinkedIn data by experience level, mid-to-senior level positions are most common in the industry’s top leading countries, such as the U.S. (13,362), China (7,650), the United Kingdom (3,898), India (1,951), and Germany (1,015). In these countries, hiring managers like to see a robust resume in addition to a solid educational framework.
Even though the U.S. is primarily on the hunt for a candidate with extensive experience, the leading country offers ample internship opportunities (985). A recent college graduate or young professional, on the other hand, would benefit from going for entry level and associate positions in countries like China, India, Japan, and Brazil.
Artificial intelligence dramatically impacts our day-to-day lives and gives business owners peace of mind when operating online. From exploiting vulnerabilities to identifying dangerous threats, AI in cybersecurity can help detect malware and prevent your workstations from falling victim to data sabotage and threats.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted a much larger percentage of the workforce to remote locations, thereby exposing these employees to new malware and ransomware risks to their corporate networks.
