Can ChatGPT Help You Get a Job?

There’s been a lot of talk about ChatGPT taking people’s jobs since its public debut in November. But can it help you get a job?

ChatGPT — the parent company of which, OpenAI, just released GPT-4 this week — can’t do your job interview for you. It can’t take your place in any of the more nerves-inducing parts of the job application process, either. The tool can help you prepare, though.

As an experiment, this reporter put ChatGPT (in its Bing Chat format, specifically) to the test as a job coach in three areas: job locator, resume writing assistant and mock job interviewer.
