ChatGPT rise opens up Prompt Engineer role to job seekers

Share post:

The rise of ChatGPT has given rise to a new job title known as Prompt Engineer, and many job seekers are adding those two words to their resumés. The position is available in a variety of settings, including a children’s hospital in Boston and a law firm in London. While freelance marketplaces such as Fiverr and Upwork are already brimming with people offering their AI prompt skills.

An AI prompt engineer is someone who specializes in developing effective prompts for AI systems to achieve specific goals. This entails comprehending the AI system’s capabilities and limitations, as well as the context in which it will be used. Promoters of the new technology assume that prompt engineering, like learning how to Google something, will become a valuable skill for all internet users.

The prompt engineer is in charge of creating prompts that will produce the desired results from the AI system while minimizing the risk of unintended or harmful outputs. They must also consider how different users or stakeholders may interpret the prompts and take steps to ensure that the AI system operates in a fair and transparent manner.

Hence, “Writing a really great prompt for a chatbot persona is an amazingly high-leverage skill and an early example of programming in a little bit of natural language,” Sam Altman, CEO of ChatGPT creator OpenAI, said.

Technology professionals who want to ride the crest of the AI wave should consider becoming prompt engineers, which appear to be one of the most in-demand jobs in 2023. Developers who want to get the most out of large language models like ChatGPT should look into prompt engineering tools, a new category of tools that direct the LLM toward a desired outcome.
