Top 5 use-cases to utilize ChatGPT for Recruiting

OpenAI's ChatGPT is the new buzz in town. It is a multipurpose tool that can interact with you in a human-like way. And the debate is still ongoing about whether this revolutionary bot will replace humans in their jobs. You might already be aware of this new trendy tool. But how do we use ChatGPT in hiring?

Let's explore the top 5 practical ways you can use ChatGPT for recruiting:

1. Write engaging job descriptions

A job description creates the first impression of a company. And hence, it must be well-crafted. ChatGPT can help you write or edit job descriptions that attract the right candidate for your job role.

I went to ChatGPT and wrote the following prompt:

We are looking for a Content Manager who has at least 3 years of experience in the following areas: marketing strategy, social media, content creation, project management, and leadership. Craft a job description highlighting the key responsibilities and qualifications for the role. Don't exceed more than 200 words.

Interesting. Right? Let's edit a job post to make it more compelling.

Format and make this job description exciting and compelling. Also include a few more details - In-office with locations San Francisco, New York and Mountain View. Perks include unlimited leaves and flexible work hours.

This is an interesting use case of ChatGPT for recruiting. Optimise your job descriptions to attract more relevant and qualified individuals instead of copy pasting job descriptions from other companies.

2. Write outreach emails and candidate summaries

All hiring requirements also need content for other essential tasks like interview emails, rejection emails, interview feedback, etc. ChatGPT can help you solve all these use cases efficiently. I am sharing two examples to give you a better idea.

I will give you a job description, and you have to write an email trying to engage the candidate. Start with their interests in career growth, then present the job opportunity. Summarise the benefits, add a sense of urgency and use a convincing tone. Keep it short, without unnecessary words. Use industry terminology and a human tone. Use call-to-action in the end. Don't exceed more than 200 words.
"[job description]"

We can also create a candidate summary from a candidate's resume that can be used to provide quick summaries to hiring managers for the shortlisted candidates.

Create a short candidate summary from the following resume "[copy and paste the resume text]".

3. Understand various jargon in the Job description

Sometimes hiring managers have niche requirements mentioned in the job description. As a recruiter, it is very important to have a good overview of these requirements to have a productive discussion with the candidates.

You can learn more about complicated keywords with a simple explanation of ChatGPT.

I am a tech recruiter. I am hiring for a DevOps role. Can you briefly explain Kubernetes and Docker to me?

Show complete response

Pro tip: Use the questions and script a conversation with ChatGPT. Ask it to act like a mediocre v/s good candidate while answering the questions you've created.

I am a tech recruiter. I am hiring for a DevOps role. I am planning to do an introductory with a candidate. Can you show response of a mediocre candidate vs good candidate to the question "What are sidecar containers in Kubernetes?"

Show complete response

Indeed these outputs will offer great assistance to you while hiring candidates. But you must be creative and use the best prompts for ChatGPT to meet your hiring goals.

4.  Search candidates with X-Ray search strings

Creating an X-Ray search string is another fantastic application for using AI in recruitment. I got good results with the below-mentioned prompt:

Write an X-ray Search string to find a software engineer with expertise in Python and Javascript and good open-source contributions for GitHub and LinkedIn.

5. Write LinkedIn posts for your jobs in minutes

67% of recruiters believe that hires from LinkedIn are of superior quality. You need to write engaging posts about jobs to draw the right kind of attention on LinkedIn. But you've got a thousand other things to do. Leverage ChatGPT for recruiting the best candidate.

Get rid of old-fashioned posts like "We are #hiring!" and do something interesting with ChatGPT. For example - check this prompt:

Write a ~100 word exciting and persuasive job post for LinkedIn on hiring a graphic designer. Feel free to use emojis!

Wrapping Up

In conclusion, ChatGPT has emerged as a powerful tool for revolutionizing the recruiting process, providing valuable support and enhancing efficiency for recruiters. Embracing ChatGPT in recruiting brings significant advantages, including increased productivity, enhanced candidate experience, and improved hiring outcomes. However, it's important to remember that ChatGPT is a tool that should complement human decision-making, not replace it. By combining the power of AI with human expertise, recruiters can unlock new possibilities and achieve recruiting excellence.
