Looking for a way to supercharge your career? Let the bots help. Take a look at some of the best AI job search tools and tips.

The bots are everywhere. Whether you’re chatting to one to find out where your delivery is or using facial recognition on your phone, AI is now a part of our everyday lives. So, how can you use it to your advantage? If you’re looking for a new job, there are plenty of options. 

Here at Resume.io, we have the resources and tools you need to succeed. In the following guide, we will be looking at the following topics: 

  • The best AI for job seekers everywhere
  • What each of these AI tool does and how they work
  • Tips on how to use the tools in your job search.

The best AI job search tools  

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few years, you know all about AI. It has fast become an integral part of our modern life. So, when you are job seeking, it’s logical to take advantage of the gifts it offers. Here are some of the best AI job search tools.

  • GPT Google Sheets add-on. Sending cold introductory emails can be laborious. Luckily, you can use the GPT add-on for Google Sheets to do the hard work for you. Create a contact sheet (or a “hit list”) and input some details about each person. The extension can then generate a unique message for each one of your contacts.
  • Resume.io CV builder. Writing a captivating CV doesn’t have to be challenging. The Resume.io CV builder features AI-generated automatic phrases you can include at the click of a button. If you’re at a loss for words, this AI tool is a real lifesaver.
  • Adzuna ValueMyCV. Figuring out what salary you should be on can be tough. If you’ve climbed the career ladder, you may not know where to begin. ValueMyCV is exactly what it says on the tin. You upload your CV to the platform and the tool will give you a rough estimate of how much you should be getting paid.
  • ChatGPT. Of course, the list of AI for job seekers would not be complete without mentioning ChatGPT. You can use the tool to help you when communicating with recruiters and hiring managers. For example, you may choose to use the platform to help you write a cover letter, a reply to a recruiter online, or other messages.

AI-powered job search tips 

Now that we’ve covered the tools you can use, let’s talk about how to use them. With great power comes great responsibility… and all that jazz. Here are three tips to remember: 

1. Research AI job search tools 

Your job search is as unique as you are—so the tools you need will be too. Which ones you use will depend on where you are in the process. For example, if you are unsure which direction to take your career in, you may look into AI that can create personalized learning paths. Should you know what you want to do, you can use our AI-powered CV builder.

2. Take a trial-and-error approach  

When you have identified the AI-powered job search tools you want to use, go ahead and test them. Don’t forget that the realms of AI are relatively new. So, not every piece of software you use will be up to scratch. Try out a few options before you decide which to use.

3. Always think outside the bots

Relying on AI to do the heavy lifting in your job search is a mistake. Sorry, bots can’t do all of the work for you. While you can integrate AI tools into your job seeking, you should also include hands-on approaches. That may mean attending IRL networking events, speaking to a careers coach, or simply taking some time alone to think about your next steps. 

Key takeaways 

  • AI is the future (and, actually, the present!). So, if you want to get ahead of the job-seeking competition, you should be using it.
  • There’s a whole range of AI job search tools you can use. Take the time to research the ones that will support your needs.
  • Remember these are only tools! Don’t rely solely on AI when you are job-seeking. Using a varied approach is likely to help you find the right job fast.
