LinkedIn recently integrated ChatGPT’s functionalities into its platform. We would like to tell you which functionality LinkedIn has added for (paid) users, but also how you can make smart use of ChatGPT without a paid membership. So that you can profile yourself even better on LinkedIn.
The innovative AI technology in LinkedIn, which has been part of Microsoft since 2016, is going to change the game for job seekers and recruiters. From automated profile formatting to intelligent matching systems, these are the latest AI features in LinkedIn:
The integrated AI assistant can help you write a compelling profile text. This will help you better communicate your professional story and attract the attention of potential employers or connections. Do not forget to carefully read the obtained profile text afterwards, as ChatGPT can quickly generate a text but you have to check if everything is correct and suits you.
With a strong headline you can make yourself stand out on LinkedIn. Use the integrated ChatGPT functionality to generate an eye-catching headline that highlights your expertise, skills and unique value proposition.
LinkedIn is also testing a new AI-generated chat feature to facilitate conversations between job seekers and recruiters. Using AI Chat, users can talk to each other in a more informal and natural way. The system can also automatically generate responses based on the context of the conversation. This makes it easy and approachable for job seekers to get information about jobs, companies and application processes.
Even without the integrated AI functionality, you can use AI as a writing aid to sharpen your profile. To do this, if you haven’t already, create a login at chat.openai.com and start experimenting.If you don’t have much experience yet, use the sample prompts below:
