How ChatGPT May Influence Recruiting

If you haven’t heard of ChatGPT by now you may be living under a rock. The AI based chat tool which is a game changer for content creation, knowledge seekers and creativity has gotten a lot of press in the past few weeks since its launch.

The tool is a natural language chatbot that knows everything that Google knows up to 2021. They have yet to add 2022 web indexing to the database so it does not contain current events or data.

What’s cool about ChatGPT is that it can answer queries and write stories just like a human can. And since the API for it is open sourced, any kind of software company can plug in into its own platform and leverage its AI capabilities for a variety of purposes.

In the coming year or two we are going to see this technology creep into your HR tech stack. I’ll bet every vendor out there is already looking how to integrate it.

I asked ChatGPT to tell me how it might influence the recruiting industry. Here’s what it told me;

As the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the recruiting industry continues to grow, it has the potential to significantly change the way that companies find and hire new employees.

One of the main ways that AI is being used in recruiting is through the development of chatbots and virtual assistants that can interact with job candidates and handle many of the initial stages of the hiring process. These systems can handle tasks such as scheduling interviews, answering basic questions about the job and company, and even assessing a candidate’s fit for a role based on their resume and responses to certain prompts.

In addition to automating many of the administrative tasks involved in recruiting, AI is also being used to analyze vast amounts of data to identify top candidates for open positions. By analyzing data such as a candidate’s work history, education, skills, and even social media presence, AI algorithms can help recruiters identify the most qualified candidates for a given role and narrow down the pool of applicants.

While the use of AI in recruiting has the potential to streamline the hiring process and help companies find the best candidates more quickly and efficiently, it also raises concerns about job displacement and the potential for biased decision-making. It will be important for companies to consider these issues as they integrate AI into their recruiting processes and ensure that they are using it ethically and responsibly.

Overall, the impact of AI on the recruiting industry is likely to be significant and far-reaching, and it will be interesting to see how it continues to shape the way that companies find and hire new employees in the future.


I can also see the tool helping recruiters and HR teams write content for their jobs. Need to craft a company wide email about an office closure? ChatGPT can write that in a few seconds. Need to craft a new job description in a minute? Yeah no problem!

Here’s what I got when I asked it to create a compelling job posting for a software sales position. I typed;

write a compelling job advertisement to attract software sales professionals

And got back this;
