+ About the Alaant Advisor
The Alaant Advisor is our column focused on all things going on in the world of recruiting, job placement, and search. Think of it as your weekly briefing—a handy, quick guide to what's going on.

Here's what's happening this week:

Last Week’s QOTW Poll Results:

Q: How do you feel about the evolution of AI in the coming years?

  • I welcome it! - 39%
  • Afraid it'll hurt jobs - 20%
  • Scared of the technology - 13%
  • Not sure - 28%  

Change is constant. The world of AI is part of that. We discussed the evolution of AI with various business leaders at a recent technology summit. The consensus is that AI will not replace jobs, but it will have an impact on skills jobseekers need to have, i.e. learning how, where and why  to use AI tools in their respective roles.  At Alaant, we are just as curious what the future holds as you. Open for a conversation on what’s changing in your vertical? Reach out today!
