The Increasing Role of Chat GPT and AI in the Hiring Process for Job Seekers
“Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make.” – Nick Boshtram
As society continues to move to a more virtual world with artificial intelligence (AI) providing a helping hand in our everyday lives, how can you as a Job Seeker take advantage of this technology? Society of Human Resources Management conducted a survey in 2022, which found that 79% of employers use A.I. and/or automation for recruiting and hiring needs. This blog will cover everything you need to know to make job seeking within AI as easy as possible. Whether you are looking for relevant jobs or creating a resume, this blog will provide you with the go to tips on being successful as a Job Seeker as we talk about the increasing role of Chat GPT and AI in the hiring process.
Building your Resume with AI Technologies
As employers increasingly use AI for recruiting and hiring needs, it is critical for you to understand the algorithms these technologies use. According to Chat GPT, (a popular AI tool) AI can identify Job Seekers by assessing relevant skills, experience, and education. How do they do this? AI is programmed to scan resumes for specific keywords and phrases that match the job requirements. As a Job Seeker, it is crucial that you include these keywords and phrases in your resume to have a better chance of matching with these technologies. When drafting up your resume, make sure to scan relevant job postings for requirements, and then include those keywords and phrases on your resume where they are applicable.
AI can also assist with drafting your resume to simplify this process. Even more, it can scan your finished resume for a specific job, and score its matching capabilities. Make sure to take full advantage of the technologies you have at your disposal. For example, Jobscan’s free resume builder not only helps you build a resume, but also scans resumes for specific keywords and phrases based on a specific job. After scanning your resume, Jobscan will provide critical keywords that you should include, and will give your resume a score based on its matching capabilities. This is just one example of a free resource for you as a Job Seeker. There are hundreds of technologies like Jobscan that will assist you as a Job Seeker.
Finding Relevant Job Postings with AI
The era of job boards and newspaper postings is coming to an end. With AI having the ability to find relevant jobs, you no longer need to scour the internet trying to find the “perfect” job. Automated software, colossal professional databases and one-click applications now dominate the hiring and recruitment process. Simply use the tools that are available to you. Chatbots, GPTs, and other AI tools can provide Job Seekers like you with personalized job recommendations, streamlining the job search process, and ultimately helping them find job opportunities based on their skills and experience.
If you’re like most Job Seekers, you likely go to a job board like Indeed and enter your preferred job title. This could be an Acumatica Implementation Consultant, a Sage Intacct Accountant, a D365 Business Central Analyst, or any other ERP position. The problem with this is that not all companies have uniform job titles. The results will vary broadly depending on what job title you use.
Try it for yourself, enter a job title that you feel is best matched to your skills and experience, and then change that title slightly to see the results change. You will be surprised by the amount of jobs you’re missing out on! Using technologies like Jobscan will further assist you in your job search by scanning your resume for specific keywords and phrases that match specific jobs. These technologies will then scour the internet and job boards to provide you with matching results – eliminating the time and effort you put into job searching.
AI Generated Interviews
With three times as many remote jobs as compared to 2020, employers are adapting to the “virtual world”. You as Job Seekers must also adapt and use the technologies at your disposal, simplifying the application process. As Forbes puts it, the virtual interview is the new resume. We at DyNexus Group have seen it time and time again. The seemingly perfect resume gets rejected because of a poor interview or lack of technology awareness. You’ve done all of the hard work, but when it comes time to interview, your Zoom or Skype account is non-existent. Or your camera has technical difficulties. No matter what the situation is, you need to practice and prepare for AI generated interviews.
Not only are companies using AI to power interviews, some companies are also replacing person-to-person virtual interviews all together. I can remember a time where I was interviewing for a security company, and I was told to conduct an interview through a link. AI generated random scenarios for which I was prompted on how I would respond. Furthermore, I was asked randomly generated questions on my skills and experiences. I was asked to record my response eliminating person-to-person conversation altogether. While this process may have streamlined the HR process, it was difficult as a Job Seeker without having the preparation and knowledge of this new technology and process. As a recruiter, we want to prepare you for these new and advanced technologies which are taking over the recruitment process. Having the knowledge and preparation in advance will provide you with the greatest opportunity of employment.
Harnessing the power of AI, particularly ChatGPT, can significantly enhance your job-seeking journey. By optimizing your resume with AI-driven tools and leveraging AI-powered job search platforms, you can increase your chances of securing the right job. Embrace AI technologies to streamline your job search process, discover tailored job opportunities, and stand out from the competition. With AI as your ally, you can navigate the evolving job market with confidence and achieve professional success.
I hope that this blog will help you as a Job Seeker in today’s ever changing recruiting environment. As you have seen over the years, whether it is an in-person or remote job, the interview process has changed drastically. We are all witnessing in real-time the increasing role of AI in the hiring process. Preparing for and having the knowledge of these processes will give you the best opportunity of placement.
