ChatGPT Recruiting 

You can only write an article about recruiting with ChatGPT if you use ChatGPT – it wouldn’t be appropriate to go it alone. So if I sound a bit robotic sometimes, please forgive me, as I had to use ChatGPT. As an aside, I laughed out loud today as I was using ChatGPT, when they asked me to complete a CAPTCHA form. There is something quite ironic about an AI giving a human a Turing test; perhaps the irony was not lost on ChatGPT. I feel that somewhere, deep in its codebase, it may have laughed as well. But on to recruiting with ChatCPT.

About ChatGPT Recruiting

ChatGPT, the Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is an advanced natural language processing (NLP) model developed by OpenAI . This chatbot technology can generate human-like text, making it an ideal tool for various applications, including recruiting, talent acquisition, and sourcing.

To explain the relationship between ChatGPT and OpenAI, OpenAI is a company that creates advanced Artificial intelligence (AI). ChatGPT is a chatbot demonstrating the AI developed by OpenAI, which is specialized in natural language processing (NLP). Picture OpenAI as a company that makes smart robots. They make a lot of different types of robots, each with its unique abilities. ChatGPT is one of the robots that OpenAI created.

ChatGPT is a very smart robot that understands and writes human language, making it particularly applicable to recruiting (which I’ve called before the most human of pursuits). OpenAI created ChatGPT to help people with tasks involving language, like writing stories, answering questions, and even scheduling appointments. So, ChatGPT is a product or tool developed by OpenAI. OpenAI has been around for a while, but the demo product of the technology (ChatGPT) is the one taking the world by storm.

ChatGPT Recruitment – Creating Job Descriptions

Recruiters can use ChatGPT to create clear and compelling job descriptions that accurately reflect the responsibilities and qualifications of a particular role. The process is quite simple; recruiters can provide ChatGPT with a few examples of job descriptions for similar positions and train the model to understand the type of language and the essential aspects of the job. 

Once the model is trained, recruiters can input a general overview of the role they are hiring for. ChatGPT will generate a detailed and accurate job description that recruiters can use to advertise the position. This could save recruiters a significant amount of time while making it more likely that they will attract suitable candidates for the role. 

ChatGPT does a pretty bang-up job without much training, just by asking it to write a job description in a new chat. Here is what I got when I asked to write a compelling job description for a Java Developer.

The chatbot lists qualifications and more, but the image was too large to capture. Needless to say, this job description will not win any recruitment marketing awards. But as a base which to edit? It’s more than adequate as a starting point. Keep in mind that you don’t have to accept the first output. You can keep up the conversation (with the AI) by writing things like “Now make that same job description more interesting” or “Now emphasize the need for J2EE design patterns in the job description,” etc.

Additionally, ChatGPT can generate further descriptions in natural language, making it easier to understand by the candidates and more engaging and attractive, which can help draw the attention of top talents and potential candidates. What I mean is that after you’ve generated your job description, try queries like this: “Now write a summary of that job description for social media, and make it interesting and intelligent, meant for Java Developers.”

social media recruiting chatgpt

Ok, really? Java Ninjas?! I heard a collective groan among the recruitment marketing purists, and some technical recruiters may have thrown up in your mouths a bit. But let’s call it what it is: ChatGPT nailed how recruiters usually write about technical roles on social media. Amazing.

ChatGPT Recruiting – Asking ChatGPI about Jobs and Functions

Recruiters are often in the position of needing to know what they are talking about. I kid, but it’s true and a skill that must be developed with fluidity to be successful in recruiting. When I was in technical recruiting long ago, I remember the hiring manager often gave me a job requirement for some esoteric technology role. I would go back to the office and Google it a bit, but my understanding was cursory. ChatGPT is the perfect tool to help recruiters better understand their roles.

Here are some sample queries. Let’s use Flex Developers as an example that we’re recruiting for. 

  • Explain to me what Flex development is
  • What skills does a Flex developer need to have
  • What does a successful Flex developer do all day
  • What certifications and education do the best Flex developers typically have
  • What distinguishes a great Flex Developer from an ordinary Flex Developer
  • What soft skills does a great Flex Developer have
  • What kind of companies use Flex Development 

With ten minutes of querying, you have more than enough to go on. And, very likely, more than I had to go on typically! Remember that you can drill down with ChatGPT much like a regular conversation. If the chatbot references something you don’t understand, let’s say it mentions rendering engines, you can ask it to explain, for example, “Wait, what does rendering engines mean?” 

asking recruiting help ai


ChatGPT Sourcing – Writing Cold Outreach Emails to Candidates 

You don’t want to go too overboard with this one, but ChatGPT can write perfect “cold” emails to candidates with some editing. Let’s write an email helping us recruit for that elusive Flex Developer with the chatbot.

writing recruiting emails with chatgpt

A bit robotic, but we’ve all seen worse from real people. With a little editing and tweaking, you’ll have the perfect recruiting email for LinkedIn or as the first email in a sequence. You can ask, “Now write a follow-up email to that person. Those recruiting email sequences in Greenhouse just became a little bit easier to handle. 

ChatGPT Hiring – Assessing Candidates and Interviewing

Finally, ChatGPT will be an excellent tool to help you understand who you should hire. The first step is understanding the role’s nuances and the position’s requirements. When you start having candidates interview for the position, ChatGPT can help you there as well. Use ChatGPT to generate lists of interview questions for a prospective candidate, and ask it what you should be looking for in a person’s resume.

interview questions chatgpt

ChatGPT nailed it, with perhaps one main consideration. It only knows your unique environment if you have trained it as such in one of the conversations. For example, it inserted questions about Agile development, but your tech team may use something other than the Agile development process. At best, you may sound a little ignorant as a recruiter. Still, at worst, you turn away a potential candidate because they might not be interested in working with a particular technology or environment. A little care goes a long way – intentionally edit your recruiting approach with ChatGPT. Second-guess what it tells you because often the details will be correct, but the overall picture may be wrong.

As a last note on accessing candidates with ChatGPT, remember that its summarizing function is one of its strongest features. You can ask the AI to summarize any text or information. Another helpful feature, as an aside, is to ask it to explain something to you so that a third-grader can read it – it’s great for complex subjects or digesting long legal documents.

How do you apply this ability to summarize to assess candidates? Use it to summarize resumes and make quick recommendations to hiring managers and other talent acquisition team members. Simply throw the text of a resume into the chat, and ask it to write you a compelling summary of that person’s experience. Here is the output when I put the text of a Java Developer’s resume into ChatGPT:

resume summary with chatgpt

To summarize, I’m a bit blown away. I cannot help thinking that the terrifying robots from Boston Dynamics will soon include OpenAI protocols in their operating systems and be turned into super soldiers who understand the world’s knowledge and have read every book. I imagine a nightmarish but almost poetic scenario of an erudite Terminator that blithely quotes Shakespeare before pulling the trigger.

But don’t let me ruin your day. Once in a while, technology changes everything, and ChatGPT is one of those events. ChatGPT will change recruiting – and everything – but hopefully for the best. Imagine a world where recruiters understand the jobs they are recruiting for and where every cold email outreach is polite, compelling, and personalized. It is truly an extraordinary vision.

In the meantime, check out ChatGPT and fool around with it in your daily recruiting. It can save time and make you a more effective recruiter.


Several commenters had some other cool ideas. One suggested using ChatGPT to improve the inclusivity of job descriptions and postings. Another idea was to leverage it for competitive analysis and benchmarking data. Let’s delve for a minute into these two possibilities.

ChatGPT Recruiting – Creating Inclusive Job Descriptions

Creating inclusive job descriptions and language is crucial for recruiting diverse candidates. Inclusive language helps create an environment that welcomes and respects people of all backgrounds and identities. Crafting inclusive language can be challenging, especially for individuals who may need to be aware of specific language or phrases that can be discriminatory or exclusive.

ChatGPT is a natural language processing model that can assist with creating inclusive language. Providing the model with a job description or posting can generate inclusive language that accurately describes the role and qualifications required. It can also help to identify language or phrases that may be discriminatory or exclusive, allowing the user to make necessary adjustments. Additionally, ChatGPT can be trained on a specific set of language and terms to create job descriptions that are inclusive to diverse groups of candidates, such as candidates with disabilities or those from underrepresented communities.

This application of ChatGPT can not only increase the diversity of the candidate pool, but it can also improve the overall applicant experience. Studies have shown that job applicants from underrepresented groups often feel discouraged or unwelcome when applying to roles that use exclusive language. By using ChatGPT to create inclusive language, employers can communicate that they value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment. This can attract and retain a more diverse workforce and improve the overall productivity and performance of the organization.

Try this out by creating your job description, then putting it into ChatGPT and going back and forth with comments to edit it. Representing an entire conversation in this post is difficult, but I would only rate ChatGPT a 5/10 in my trial. When asked to include more inclusive language to sharpen the focus to a diverse audience, it often added the word “diverse” in the sample job description. It changed the job function of my example “Marketing Manager” job to include “This role will be responsible for creating an inclusive and diverse approach to marketing strategies and campaigns, with an emphasis on tailoring strategies to reach and engage a diverse customer base.” This one will take some more work or tuning because you’re trying to expand the interest of a certain audience, not necessarily changing the actual job function.  

Using ChatGPT for Salary Benchmarking Data

Deriving competitive salary insights is essential to recruiting qualified applicants to a company. It can help businesses to remain competitive in the job market and attract top talent. However, determining the appropriate salary for a given role can take time and effort, as it can be difficult to keep up with market trends and understand the compensation package offered by other companies in the same industry.

ChatGPT, a natural language processing model, can assist in this process by providing businesses with a means to gather competitive salary insights. The model can be trained on data related to salaries and compensation packages offered by similar companies in the same industry, allowing it to generate insights on average salaries, benefits, and other compensation-related information.

This information can then inform the company’s compensation strategy, including developing salary ranges for different roles. By providing competitive salary insights, the company can ensure that its compensation package is in line with industry standards, which can help to attract and retain top talent in a highly competitive job market.

Additionally, this approach can provide a way for the companies to check their compensation packages, understand the gaps and try to improve in the areas where they are behind in the market. ChatGPT can also help analyze salary trends over time to predict future market shifts and adjust accordingly.

However, ChatGPT is not connected to the Internet for real-time data, which is an important distinction for salary information. It seems like it has ingested all of the BLS government salary information to give you pretty good ranges. When I asked, ” What’s the salary range for a marketing manager in AL, around a major metro area?” ChatGPT replied, “The salary range for a marketing manager in Alabama, around a major metro area can vary depending on a number of factors such as the industry, the size of the company, and the individual’s experience and qualifications. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual salary for marketing managers in Alabama was $110,470 as of May 2020. However, in a major metro area like Birmingham, Alabama, the salary range for a marketing manager could be much higher than the state average. Glassdoor, Indeed, and Payscale are resources you can use to research and compare salary ranges for marketing manager roles in Alabama. Keep in mind that data can fluctuate and be affected by factors like company size, location, and industry, it’s always best to check with multiple sources to get an idea of an accurate salary range.” 

So as before, it seems like you can rely on it to discuss a topic, but it’s not going to be extremely specific or up to date, and as you can see, it knows to refer us back to top salary sites, like Glassdoor.
