How Chat GPT can assist you in your job search

Job searching can be a time consuming process. According to Forbes, it takes an estimated average 20-80 applications to receive one offer. This is where ChatGPT can be a valuable tool in your job search journey by optimising your job search and giving you a competitive edge. ChatGPT can assist with various stages of your job hunting process, including:

  • CV optimisation

  • Interview preparation

  • Researching companies you are applying with 

  • Coming up with different ways of presenting your CV or talking about your experience 

  • Preparing case studies / presentations 

Just to name a few. 

Benefits of Using Chat GPT

  1. Assisting in optimising your CV

A well-crafted CV is really important to get noticed by potential employers. By giving it as much information as possible, Chat GPT can give you guidance to tailor your resume to specific job postings by suggesting relevant keywords and phrases, ensuring your resume passes through applicant tracking systems (ATS) and catches the eye of hiring managers and HR professionals.  ChatGPT also uses advanced natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to analyse your existing CV and provide personalised suggestions for improvement, therefore offering ideas you may not have thought of yourself. 

  1. Preparing for Interviews

Interviews can be daunting, but with the help from chat GPT, you can practise answering common interview questions for your field of work, receive constructive feedback, refine your responses, and receive interview tips. You can also ask ChatGPT for technical interview questions to practise showcasing your skills and knowledge, and behavioural interview questions that may cover topics like teamwork, communication, problem-solving, leadership, and conflict resolution. This will give you an idea of what to expect at your next job interview so you can prepare more effectively and feel confident going in. As a result, it will not only boost your confidence but also increase your chances of being successful at an interview. 

  1. Networking with Linkedin 

Networking plays a vital role in the job search process. Chat GPT can help you write engaging messages and emails to reach out to professionals in your area. A tip when prompting ChatGPT to help you craft Linkedin messages is to tell it the messaging style (e.g. semi casual, professional). 

  1. Case studies 

Chat GPT can assist you in preparing case studies and/or presentations if this forms part of the recruitment process. It saves you time on starting from scratch. You could use ChatGPT to generate ideas for case studies, write compelling case study introductions, and fast track your content ideas for the case study.

Some things to keep in mind when using Chat GPT

  1. Provide ChatGPT with specific prompts to get the most out of the information it provides you. This Linkedin article gives suggestions on specific examples to ask ChatGPT

  2. You will need to refine the suggestions ChatGPT provides to make your content personalised and authentic

  3. Use it to get you started and/or provide ideas, not as a finished product. You’ll need to take steps to refine and edit your CV to accurately showcase your unique expertise

  4. Do not use personal identifying information when using chat GPT 

The main value we see in using chat GPT is:

  1. It can save you time

  2. It can provide you with some ideas and new ways of presenting information in your job search

  3. It's a free and easily accessible tool you can use from anywhere
