With AI such as ChatGPT being at the forefront of job discussion, the team at Overnight Jobs has done research into what jobs may be affected by the introduction of AI such as ChatGPT and produced the following (not written by ChatGPT by the way) for the military service leaver to be potentially aware of…

Copy/ Content Writer

ChatGPT is known for its accurate and detailed content writing performances, and due to this could write out copy or content for an individual or organization in seconds, whereas a human writing the content could take hours. What you gain in speed, however, you will certainly lose in detail, empathy, and the inclusion of societal context.

Programmers and Coders

ChatGPT can write code accurately and quickly, much faster than any human programmer. Due to this, small teams of coders and programmers can use ChatGPT to write code that would normally have to be completed by larger teams. However, programmers and coders will still have to monitor the code written for any mistakes.


ChatGPT has also made it into the legal world. Paralegals and legal assistants will spend a lot of their time looking at masses of information and copywriting it into a legally digestible document, using ChatGPT have already been trialled with this as it would save massive amounts of time and money when it comes to writing legal documents. However, there are concerns about the details that are extremely important when processing legal documents.

Customer Service Representatives

AI is often used today when it comes to customer service and complaints. However, with the introduction of ChatGPT, we could see it become more widespread. This is because, whatever industry you work in, there is a finite amount of solutions to customer problems. As soon as an AI knows these, it can find the right solution to a problem in seconds. But oftentimes, customer service is ranked on its personal touch, something an AI cannot represent.


It has been speculated that ChatGPT could easily teach a class, as it can convey basic information and questions, as well as mark whether the information you relay back is correct. While this could, in theory, work with subjects like maths and science, that hold definitive answers to questions, more creative subjects could very well be out of comprehension for AI at this point in time.

ChatGPT was launched as a prototype on November 30, 2022, and quickly garnered attention for its detailed responses and articulate answers across many domains of knowledge. Its uneven factual accuracy, however, was identified as a significant drawback. Following the release of ChatGPT, OpenAI’s valuation was estimated at US$29 billion.
