By Divyanshi Sharma: Have you ever struggled with writing the perfect job application? If you answered this question with a yes, then your struggling days might be over soon. You no longer need to ask somebody else for help to perfect your job application because LinkedIn will do it for you. How? Read on to find out.
LinkedIn testing out new AI feature
As per reports, LinkedIn is testing a new feature in which it will use AI to help its users in drafting the perfect job application. News agency IANS reports that LinkedIn is testing the feature that will help job seekers and give them personalised writing suggestions that they can send to hiring managers and boost their chances of landing a job. Users will be able to generate cover letter-like messages that are short and to-the-point, and can be sent to recruiters.
The feature, as per the report, is already available for LinkedIn’s Premium subscribers.
Ora Levit, Senior Director, Head of Core Growth + Premium at LinkedIn, wrote in a post, “Using generative AI with information from your profile, the hiring manager’s profile, the job description, and the company of interest, we create a highly personalised draft message to get a conversation started.”
She added that even though LinkedIn will help with the first draft, it is important for users to customise their application. Hence, job seekers should take time out to review the draft generated by AI, edit it, customise it to fit their voice, and then send it forward. According to the company, the newly introduced feature is a further development of their AI-driven writing tool designed for LinkedIn Profiles. This tool harnesses the content already present in a user’s profile to generate engaging Headlines and About sections.
The growth of AI
Interest in the AI space has grown at a rapid pace in the last couple of months. Many companies have started adapting AI in their operations and others are on the verge of including AI in their day to day operations. The interest around AI peaked with the introduction of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, a revolutionary AI chatbot that became popular for its human-like responses and the ability to perform all sorts of tasks. Be it writing essays, composing poetry and music, or suggesting ideas for content, ChatGPT soon became the one-stop solutoin for people’s content needs. After ChatGPT’s popularity, Microsoft and Google also rolled out their chatbots, Bing and Bard, respectively.
