The job portal Indeed reported a near 20% increase in generative AI-related job postings in May, to 204 per million, or more than double the number of postings in May 2021.

Five percent of the AI job postings on Indeed's U.S. platform in May were for data scientists. Also in demand were software engineers, machine learning engineers, and data engineers. "There has been a notable increase in job seeker interest in AI-related jobs, especially since the introduction of ChatGPT," said Nick Bunker, director of economic research at Indeed.

However, Indeed reported a 43.6% decrease in U.S. tech jobs from June 2022. Interest in the number of AI jobs was not keeping up with the interest from job seekers. Searches for generative AI jobs in May totaled 147 per million total jobs searched, up from virtually zero in May 2022.
