92 | Using ChatGPT In Your Job Search | Where It’s Helpful, What It Can’t Do, and How AI Is Used in Recruiting and Hiring

It’s impossible to avoid the prevalence of ChatGPT and Open AI programs in today’s world, especially while it’s relatively new and trendy. No matter how you feel about it, ChatGPT is a tool that – just like any other – has its pros, cons, and best practices. In this episode, we’re talking about how our clients are using it for their cover letters and resumes, where it can get you into trouble, and how recruiters and HR teams are utilizing it.

Some key takeaways from this episode include:

  • ChatGPT can be a good way to get some ideas down on paper for your cover letter, resume, or interview questions to prep for so the process feels less daunting as you get started.
  • Just like with individual opinions and perspectives you get from humans, you should carefully and strategically consider the advice or suggestions you get from ChatGPT based on what’s important to you and your unique job search. Don’t treat it as the end-all be-all.
  • One great way to utilize ChatGPT is to ask it about various job titles in your industry related to your target role. You can use that list to search on LinkedIn or in local meetup groups for people to connect and network with.
