LinkedIn, the world’s largest business and employment social network, is launching new AI tools
that operate on OpenAI’s GPT technology.
These tools will offer personalized writing suggestions. Job seekers can craft standout profiles and employers can create compelling job descriptions. Selected premium subscribers can already test the tools, which are expected to roll out to all premium members in the upcoming months.
For professionals, LinkedIn’s AI tool scans existing profiles to identify the most important skills and experiences. Then it generates relevant About and Headline sections and suggestions on how professionals can improve their profiles.
For employers and hiring managers, LinkedIn is testing an AI-powered job description tool that makes it easier and faster to create attractive job descriptions. Job listing creators need to provide the company name, job title, and some basic information to get a personalized job description.
Although the tool can preserve one’s “unique voice and style,” LinkedIn cautions that “customization is still important.” LinkedIn’s AI tools can cut a significant amount of the work involved in creating a profile or job description but, like similar AI tools
, need human input for the best results. Professionals and employers are advised to review and edit the AI-generated content and make the necessary tweaks to ensure it truly reflects their needs.
Recently, ChatGPT-powered Bing Chat
introduced a shortcut button in the Microsoft Edge sidebar that allows users to get AI assistance across any web page, including LinkedIn. Users who don’t have a premium LinkedIn membership can launch the platform through Bing Chat to get free AI assistance. Another option for non-premium members is to use the free version of ChatGPT.
LinkedIn also launched a knowledge base
developed by LinkedIn editors and industry experts. To help its users get on board with the rapid AI advancements, LinkedIn if offering 100+ AI courses
for free until June 15. There are several generative AI courses taught by industry experts, and an additional 20 prepared by AI leaders will be released in the following months.
LinkedIn is no stranger to AI – it has been using it for over 15 years to connect professionals with employers and vice versa. According to the company, the new AI tools are “just the start of an exciting journey.”
