LinkedIn writes to hiring managers using AI
With the new update, users will find the “Let the AI write a message for the hiring team” option along with open positions on the platform’s jobs page. The feature uses “information from your profile, hiring manager profile, job description and company of interest“ to generate a “very personalized” message, according to LinkedIn.
LinkedIn also showed an example of this technology. The message looks like the beginning of a cover letter. However, the message written by the AI that users will receive may change based on the qamount of information in your LinkedIn profile. The company stresses that “personalization is still important” and that users should review and edit text before submitting.
LinkedIn, which belongs to Microsoft, is taking advantage of the innovations launched by OpenAI, which Microsoft strongly supports. In fact, LinkedIn has already tested other generative AI features. The platform has added suggestions of AI writing to profiles and “collaborative articles” which also use AI written text.
