With 2023 bringing a huge shift in how we view technology, we’ve seen a major increase in AI and how it can be used for the everyday. According to Business Insider, AI ‘prompt engineer’ jobs pay particularly well (up to $375,000 a year), without always requiring a background in tech to begin with!
So, it seems there are some seriously high-paying roles in AI, but this is rocking the boat a little when it comes to understanding where Americans’ jobs lie, and the need for their roles in the future. With this soar in AI comes the question of where it will leave many traditional jobs moving forward.

In North Carolina, when analyzing the most common professions, it seems several key jobs are at risk, with some odds even at a shocking 100% over the next two decades. Most concerningly is the fourth most common job in North Carolina - laborers and freight, stock, and material movers. With around 97,090 residents employed in this line of work, they could all be a risk in the future with odds of -100,000.
Office clerks, the 8th most common job, are also significantly at risk, with 79,290 in this profession potentially out of a job.
Odds are, firefighters, civil engineers and construction managers are least at risk of losing their jobs to AI, all at just 1% (or +9,900), with these jobs all seemingly being unaffected by AI. This is likely because these sectors require manual work that AI simply can’t (or won’t) replace, taking human intelligence to fulfill these roles properly.
With firefighters ranking as the 65th most common job and civil engineers placing 97th, when looking at a more common job which has a low risk of being automated, registered nurses lead the way. With over 104,000 people in North Carolina working as a registered nurse, it comes out as the third most common job and has just a 10% risk of being automated (or +900).
These are the most popular jobs across the whole of America, including North Carolina:
