Two online jobseeker tools with AI features:
In addition to the online tools above, various platforms, including LinkedIn and Adzuna, have incorporated AI features into their products to strengthen job applications, offer career guidance, and generate personalized messages for reaching out to hiring managers.
LinkedIn – The World's Largest Professional Network Platform
Premium subscribers can use generative AI to draft personalized messages for contacting hiring managers, thus enhancing their job seekers’ experiences. Leveraging the power of generative AI and utilizing information from both your profile and the hiring manager's profile, along with the job description and the company of interest, LinkedIn has created highly personalized draft messages that serve as an ideal conversation starter.
This innovation builds upon their recent introduction of AI-powered writing suggestions for LinkedIn profiles, where they utilize the content already in your profile to craft engaging Headlines and About sections.
Adzuna Prepper - AI Interview Coach
Adzuna’s interview readiness tool, Prepper, uses AI to generate interview questions based on the job ad and provide feedback on responses, acting as a confidence booster for job seekers. It is designed to transform the way job seekers prepare for interviews. Users need to input the job title, job description, and company name, and the tool will produce the five most likely interview questions to be asked. Prepper allows candidates to practice their responses by entering draft answers. Then, the AI coach at Adzuna provides feedback scores and detailed suggestions for improvement, giving candidates a competitive edge.
As AI technology evolves, it becomes increasingly integrated into various career-related tools, empowering job seekers and assisting those contemplating career changes. However, users should remember that while AI tools can facilitate job-seeking processes, it is important to customize all communication and documents. Take the time to review and edit the drafts AI provided, ensuring they reflect your unique voice and personality, before sending them to the hiring managers.
