How to Use CHATGPT to Hack Your Job Search & Career

Everyone’s talking about ChatGPT, a new artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot. But did you know this new tool can be incredibly useful for your career?

It’s true! From drafting a cover letter to writing a thank you note after an interview, ChatGPT can make job searching much easier. 

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT launched in November 2022 by OpenAI.  It’s a revolutionary online chatbot that uses artificial intelligence to answer questions or prompts in a realistic conversational way.

How Do You Use ChatGPT?

The whole point is that it mimics human conversation, so you just “talk” to it. Ask questions and it will answer you. Then you can simply continue the conversation.

Remember: ChatGPT has its imitations.  Use it to support your job search and professional development–not replace it.

Using ChatGPT in Your Job Search

Applying for jobs can be tedious. But with ChatGPT, you can quickly create personalized content for your applications and online profiles. Swipe to learn how!

Identify Your  Skills

It’s important to know what we are good at if we want to succeed. ChatGPT can help by looking for patterns or themes that indicate your particular strengths from your resume.

Find a Career Path

If you still don’t know what you want to be when you grow up, use the chatbot to learn about the different types of jobs out there.

Draft a Resume and Cover Letter

You should only use ChatGPT to generate a first draft. It is going to be generic. It will have mistakes, be repetitive, and include irrelevant information.

Generate Bullet Points

Coming up with descriptive bullet points is where most people struggle when writing a resume.  You know what you did, but how do you say that in resume terms? Ask ChatGPT!

Improve Your Resume and Cover Letter

If you don’t know how to polish your job search materials or tailor them to the job description, ChatGPT can suggest what you should include.

Analyze Job Descriptions

Your resume and cover letter will be scanned for keywords. If they aren’t there, you won’t be getting an interview. ChatGPT can be used to pick out these specific key points.

Find Job Openings

Not every job vacancy is advertised online. There is an entire hidden job market out there that ChatGTP can help you tap into.
