Please check out this fantastic article by Success Magazine with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – ChatGPT Will Write Your Resume in Minutes, but Should You Use It?
I was fortunate enough to be featured in this fantastic article by Success Magazine: 𝗖𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗚𝗣𝗧 𝗪𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗪𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝗬𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝘂𝗺𝗲 𝗶𝗻 𝗠𝗶𝗻𝘂𝘁𝗲𝘀, 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗨𝘀𝗲 𝗜𝘁?
In a matter of months, ChatGPT and other AI-based software have gone from relatively unheard of to a potential part of our everyday lives. They’re causing both concern and elation across multiple industries, including HR departments. Job applicants are sometimes proudly, sometimes secretly, using ChatGPT to create cover letters, resumes and even entire applications, and employers have something to say about it.
Use it for your cover letter instead of your resume.
Matthew Warzel, president of resume writing and career coaching firm MJW Careers, LLC, writes in his blog that ChatGPT is more suited to cover letter writing than resumes. “Your resume is like a Lego set. Every build is different from the other sets. You are using the same blocks and colors as other sets, but each set comes with its own instructions, amounts of Lego block types and free reign as to how you want to tackle the build,” he writes. Instead, try it first with your cover letter. “I can see ChatGPT taking that over unless of course, you want to invest in having a more in-depth cover letter that maybe shows why you are a pain point resolver.”
Overall, the cover letter is a bit lower stakes than the resume. “Take the time to invest in your career. That includes your resume. This isn’t a willy-nilly piece of paper,” Warzel adds.
Your resume might look like others.
Finally, keep in mind 2,000 other applicants might be looking to ChatGPT too, making your resume less likely to stand out, Royal says.
ChatGPT doubts its own abilities with resumes.
Warzel jokes in his blog that when he asked ChatGPT “Why won’t ChatGPT takeover resume writing?,” the program itself doubted its abilities for three reasons, the first being: “Creating a good resume is not just about following a set of rules or templates. It requires understanding the job seeker’s specific skills, experience and career objectives, and presenting that information in a way that effectively highlights their strengths and accomplishments. This requires a level of personalization and nuance that an AI may not be able to fully capture.”
