THIS job could earn Brits without any qualifications up to £43,000 a year.
Prompt engineers are raking in huge amounts of cash despite never going to university – but experts are warning the job may not be around for long.
The job is relatively new and has come about thanks to the rise in AI chatbots.
AI chatbots, like ChatGPT, are able to learn and use past interactions to inform new decisions.
Each new input into an AI chatbot, including OpenAI’s model, uses each new request to do things better in the future.
The job of prompt engineers is to identify the AIs’ errors and hidden capabilities so developers can address them.
And people who take on these roles are being paid big money to do so – without having gained a degree in the subject.
Job site Adzuna lists the yearly wage as up to £43,000.
And the money could rise even higher if you go abroad.
Andrew Andrew Hunter, the co-founder of Adzuna explained: “A university degree is no longer the only ticket to a high paying career, as more industries look to expand their talent pools to a more diverse range of applicants and offer on the job training.
“The IT sector is a good example of this, boasting many high paying roles like scrum master, ethical hacker, and software developer open to jobseekers without a computer science qualification.”
However, many experts believe the job of the prompt engineer is a fad that will peter out.
Ethan Mollick, a Wharton School professor, last month Tweeted: “I have a strong suspicion that ‘prompt engineering’ is not going to be a big deal in the long-term & prompt engineer is not the job of the future.”
Prompt Engineers aren’t the only profession raking in cash without having gone to university.
Scrum masters, for example, are earning upwards of £62,000 a year.
A scrum master acts as a project manager for IT and tech development.
There are courses you can take to train in being a scrum master, but there’s no strict path into the job.
Commercial pilots, ethical hackers and air traffic controllers are also among the jobs paying around £60,000 a year.
And while a degree isn’t needed for most of these jobs, there may be other requirements.
For example, you don’t need to study at university to become a commercial pilot, but you’ll usually need five GCSEs including English, Science, and Maths.
With the cost of a university education adding up to £57,000 on average, it could pay to pursue one of the high-paying careers that avoid taking on student loan debts and studying costs.
The average wage in the UK in the last tax year was around £33,000.
The national living wage in the UK, which is the minimum for those aged over 23, is rising to £10.42 next month.
