In September, our group accepted the challenge of investigating the ways in which artificial intelligence operates in the world of career search engines. As upper-year students who anticipate graduation in their near future, and future candidates in the employment industry, we were particularly attracted to our project question.
Although each of our group members developed in varying academic programs throughout their postsecondary career, we discovered that the phenomenon of artificial intelligence was universal. We noticed that job loss was a recurring element in our research and further investigated how automation was affecting the job market. We decided to answer the question: Is the integration of AI within the career search and acquisition process counterintuitive, considering its ability to act as a tool that fosters job loss?
