ChatGPT: A quick-start guide for job-seekers and employers

What is ChatGPT?

OpenAIs ChatGPT has been a hot topic in the news since the start of this year – For those of you that don’t know already, ChatGPT is a natural language processing tool driven by AI technology that enables you to engage in human-like conversations and much more with the chatbot. From answering questions to assisting with tasks such as drafting emails and fixing complex code, ChatGPT is an incredibly versatile language model.

How can ChatGPT help recruitment?

ChatGPT can be a valuable tool to use within the recruitment process for both candidates and recruiters. It can help with various aspects of recruitment, including creating interview questions, helping with job adverts, helping with standard templates and a lot more!

This article will go through all of those points and a few more to give you an insight into how this powerful tool can help you.

Create interview questions – Just by asking ‘create a list of 10 questions for an interview with a mortgage underwriter’, ChatGPT will provide you with specific questions covering a range of dimensions, suitable for use in a Mortgage Underwriter interview – perfect for busy hiring managers and also a good resource for job seekers looking to practice interview questions.

See example:

Help write job adverts – We asked ChatGPT to write us a job advert for a Mortgage Underwriter role based in London for a banking institute, and it gave us exactly that. It provided a ready-to-publish job advert which included industry requirements and qualifications such as having a ‘minimum of 3 years of experience in mortgage underwriting’ and include basic responsibilities such as ensuring that mortgage applications comply with company policies and underwriting guidelines. If you are time-pressurised and need to get a good quality job ad up fast or working as a recruiter but are not a natural writer, ChatGPT is a very useful tool to have. 

See example:

Writing templates – We asked ChatGPT to write a reply to a candidate’s question about why they didn’t get the job and gave it the prompt to write it in a professional and empathetic way. Yes, a human-written automated message could also achieve the same end, arguably. We then asked it to create a template for us to use in the future where we only have to fill in the blanks.

See example:

ChatGPT - email reply to candidate that's not successful

Ask ChatGPT about different roles – This is great for both recruiters and job seekers. If you’re a recruiter, and you need to know more about a new position or you just want to know more about what the role you’re recruiting for entails, ChatGPT help. We asked it to tell us what a Mortgage Completion Officer is and what is included in their role and it came up with this:

ChatGPT - show what's included in a mortgage completion officer role

Similar for a job seeker who is looking to know more about a particular role or simply looking for a career change we asked it to tell us ‘What skills and qualifications do you need to work as a Mortgage Completion Officer’ and this is what it gave us:

Are you struggling to hear back from recruiters? Have you interviewed for a job recently or sent your CV to a company and not heard back, ChatGPT can assist you with follow-up communication, such as emails or cover letters, which may increase your chances of receiving a response. With its wide range of capabilities, ChatGPT is an exceptional tool for anyone looking to streamline their communication and productivity.

See example:

ChatGPT - Writing email template for candidate

Although ChatGPT is still in its early stages its capabilities are endless. Whether you’re using it to find out more about a particular role or write out different templates, its versatility and capability to streamline communication and productivity make it an exceptional tool for both job seekers and recruiters.
