- Microsoft's new AI has also ben picked up by LinkedIn.
- The job-oriented website makes it easier to get hired.
- Hiring managers will be prompted on potential candidates.
It’s pretty safe to say that most of us already have LinkedIn profiles, so we already know what the website is about and what it does.
Lately, Microsoft’s LinkedIn business social network has announced it is using generative AI to help its users improve what’s on their profiles, along with businesses who want to make better job postings.
Today, however, LinkedIn announced a new feature that is supposed to help job seekers create a message to hiring managers on the service.
So, if you were in the job market for quite a while and needed an extra helping hand, this new AI might be exactly what you need.
Here’s how Microsoft’s new AI can help get you hired
As we mentioned, the company is testing a new feature that will generate brief, cover letter-like messages candidates can send to hiring managers on the platform.
As a matter of fact, the above-mentioned feature is starting to roll out now for the website’s premium subscribers.
Following the update, users will see the option to Let AI draft a message to the hiring team alongside open roles on the platform’s jobs page.
You might want to know that the feature draws on information from your profile, the hiring manager’s profile, the job description, and the company of interest to create a highly personalized message.
In the screenshot provided by LinkedIn developers, the message reads like the opening few sentences of a cover letter.
That being said, the AI-written message users see will likely vary based on how much information is in your LinkedIn profile.
People responsible for website note that customization is still important and that users should double check and edit the text before sending it.
LinkedIn, which in case you didn’t know is owned by OpenAI partner Microsoft, has experimented with other generative AI features.
The platform added AI writing suggestions to profiles and collaborative articles which also make use of AI-written text.
Without a doubt, this is definitely a feature that sounds a lot like the generative AI features that are being put into Microsoft 365 Copilot, which will write emails, documents, spreadsheets, and more from scratch based on some text prompts.
The Redmond tech giant is currently testing Copilot with a few businesses but will expand its reach to more companies in the coming months.
