So get this, a massive lay off at Google, 12,000 employees gone. But now, hold onto your hats, because word on the street is that an even bigger layoff might be hitting the tech giant soon, like up to 30,000 jobs. That’s no joke, my friends.
Now, why, you ask? Well, apparently Google is looking to restructure their ad sales department because of the increasing use of artificial intelligence in their operations. This has got people worried that a huge layoff is on the horizon for the ad sales unit, which is made up of about 30,000 people.
According to a report from The Information, the development of AI is going to lead to a lot of people losing their jobs at Google pretty soon. AI tools are taking over, my friends, and Google is planning to automate certain jobs in the ad sales and customer service department. And word has it that this decision was discussed during a company-wide Google Ads meeting.
And get this, Google is rolling out new AI-powered ads. Crazy, right? These ads are all about using artificial intelligence to create keywords, headlines, images, and other aspects of the advertisement. It’s like we’re living in the future, man.
Oh, and get this. The CEO, we’ll call him “S.P.” said that morale took a big hit after the last year’s layoffs. But he’s defending the decision, saying it was tough but necessary. He’s basically saying that if they hadn’t let those people go, it would have been even worse for the company in the long run.
So buckle up, folks, because it looks like Google is heading into a whole new era, and it might not be great news for a lot of employees. That’s the world of tech for you.
