In the months and years to come, AI may also replace hiring managers. The recent survey also indicated that 43% of companies plan to implement AI for conducting job interviews by 2024. While two-thirds of the surveyed group appeared to believe that AI interviews will increase hiring efficiency, nearly 15% said they would rely solely on AI throughout the hiring process. 
AI has grown at an astonishing pace in recent months, now able to hold human-like conversations in multiple languages, create music and pass medical exams.
It’s almost certain that AI will affect the next generation’s workforce. A 2020 report by the World Economic Forum predicted that 85 million jobs will be replaced by AI by 2025, while AI could potentially generate 97 million new roles across 26 countries.
