The Rise of ChatGPT Jobs
Meanwhile, tools like Open AI’s ChatGPT have unleashed a host of products and services built around the tool, including ChatGPT consulting services.

Retrospectively, there has always been a certain degree of resistance towards new technology or devices being invented. For instance, when the launch of Android and iPhone invented a new industry of mobile application development. Likewise, in the case of ChatGPT—while many fear that it will take away jobs like that of writers, customer service personnels, developers, translators, data entry personnels and similar other profiles—it has a huge potential for creating an industry of jobs powered by expertise in the tool itself.
With the current raging debate around the roles or jobs surrounding ChatGPT, there is an even bigger potential for the multifaceted jobs it can create. The important thing is to position ourselves for new jobs that are being created as we speak for businesses.
For instance, there are hundreds of freelancers offering their ChatGPT skills as services on Upwork.
Among the most in-demand roles is that of a ChatGPT consultant for business. Consulting companies across the globe are offering the services of ChatGPT consultants for business in order to help them scale.
OpenAI’s popular chatbot has also revolutionised the consulting industry with various platforms offering ChatGPT consultancy services, wherein they provide the services of ChatGPT experts who help businesses in optimising the potential of the chatbot for their business through various ways that may include content generation, social media management, customer services and more.
