It seems clear that artificial intelligence will eliminate millions of jobs, but it will not only generate many more but will also help extraordinarily efficiently in the job search process. It seemed clear that generative technologies and LinkedIN were destined to meet sooner rather than later and this Wednesday was the big day, with the announcement of the first movements aimed at the general public. It is a conversational robot, a chatbot, that bears the explicit name of “job seeker coach”, that is, a job search coach.
A select group of Premium members of the professional portal, owned by Microsoft, Yesterday they started testing the new tool programmed by Open Ai, the parents of ChatGPT. The service consists of a generative artificial intelligence chatbot designed to help users assess whether they are using the time spent searching for activity intelligently.
According to Erran Berger, vice president of product engineering at LinkedIn, the big obstacle of the technology was the reduction in the program’s response time. The issue is not trivial since all Internet users are used to receiving an immediate response, so waiting several seconds can be discouraging. However, those who persevere will be able to see that the chatbot goes much further than automated messages from job-seeking companies or job descriptions in search of new profiles. In a nutshell, This is a “companion” capable of encouraging or discouraging candidates in certain processes.
For now, the luckiest LinkedIN users, chosen for the testing phase, can ask if their resume is suitable for the available offer, to obtain an answer to their question. They may also ask what is the best way to position themselves for the vacant position. At best, the response provided by the chatbot was something like this: “Your profile shows that you have extensive experience in marketing and event planning, which is relevant to this position”, according to reports from the business portal of the American network CNBC. In the event that the candidate does not have the qualities or abilities necessary for the new job, the robot will have no problem reporting possible gaps with complete honesty.
The same sources indicate that the user can use ChatGPT to create their resume, but they also have the new Linkedin chatbot at their disposal to find out who works in the offering company, with information on employee profiles that the user can contact looking for a recommendation, if applicable.
