3 Ways ChatGPT Could Change the Staffing Industry Forever
Updated: Sep 13
With the rise of ai writing intelligence and tools like ChatGPT, some are utilizing the tool to write cover letters and resumes.
It’s only fair at this point that candidates catch up to the sophistication of software used at companies to read, select, and throw out the resumes for them. But what will this look like when machine writing meets machine reading? And how do smaller companies that still manually look at resumes compete? How will you separate candidates?
Here’s what you can expect to change or at least what we know so far:
1. Flawless Resumes
The newest version of ChatGPT will be able to analyze a job description and curate a carefully written resume bio and cover letter to stand out from the crowd. Of course, candidates will have to stand on their own in the vetting process.
Most interviews will still require a technical skill test or project, especially for industries such as information technology. Questions may have to be modified to help prevent candidates from using ChatGPT to write code or answer various technical questions.
Overall, this means more time the recruiter and employer will spend more time vetting candidates to ensure they match the experience on their resume.
2. Rise in the Human Touch
These tools will make it easier to produce content, job descriptions, and resumes. Forcing candidates and employers to stand out from the noise. This could result in an increase in video format with real members of the company recording content to help humanize the message and communicate the team culture.
To be human is to be flawed. A prediction not yet popularized is that one day misspelled words on a piece of content or resume will be a clear sign that a human wrote it. Rather than being seen as a horrific mistake, it may be embraced.
3. New Jobs
Savvy staffing agencies will be able to utilize AI software dedicated to identifying language created by tools like ChatGPT. All new software comes with caveats though, identifying abilities are limited and many are witnessing writing that is 100% human written labeled as 65-80% AI written. Companies will need to integrate a human element into their vetting process and not rely so heavily on the written word.
As with all things in the digital age, those who adapt survive. AI is here to stay and will continue to have a powerful impact on all industries, however, staffing and recruiting will be at the forefront.
