How to use ChatGPT to build your resume

Professionally piecing together the different parts of your career to create your resume can be a difficult puzzle. ChatGPT is here to help.

Whether you’re looking for your first job out of college or have been in the game for decades, there’s one thing we can all agree on – job hunting is a tedious process.

As if finding a job that matches your qualifications and expectations wasn’t difficult enough, you also need to summarize all of your professional experience and strengths in one application.

That application consists of many moving parts such as references, experience, a cover letter, a creative portfolio, and the most intimidating for some — a CV or resume.

Well, now ChatGPT is here to help make the resume creation process easy.

How ChatGPT can help your job application process

You can use ChatGPT to help you generate ideas and key points for your role from scratch, or to refine and optimize current bullet points that may not be hitting the mark. In addition to the bullet points, it can help you answer questions about composing your resume and best practices. Here’s how to get started.

  1. Choose a resume template

ChatGPT will help you with all summaries in the text, but before you can add it, you’ll need to choose a template. The program you use to write your resume—such as Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and Canva—will likely already have a resume template.

A quick Google search for resume templates will also lead you to hundreds of editing templates that you can import into the program of your choice. We recommend that you choose the one that best represents you and your needs.

  1. Log in to ChatGPT

Next, you’ll want to visit OpenAI’s ChatGPT home page and sign in or create an account. It’s free to use, so the registration process is simple, requiring no credit cards or obscure information.

  1. Add text

If you want ChatGPT to generate text for your resume from scratch, all you have to do is request it.

Whether you want him to generate your professional resume or a single bullet point, ask him directly. For example, we asked ChatGPT, “Can you write a short, professional resume for my role as a technical reporter?” Within seconds, he did, as seen in the photo.

While ChatGPT is more than capable of coming up with content ready to copy and paste into a summary, you should adjust the text to be personalized to your actual experience and appear less robotic. After all, employers want to know what makes you unique and without your help, the chatbot will only have access to general inquiries about your role.

  1. Use ChatGPT to translate your own text

Whether you’ve decided to fill out a template yourself before using ChatGPT’s help, or have an existing resume you’d like to improve, ChatGPT is a great resource for polishing your writing. All you have to do is copy and paste your own text and ask ChatGPT to improve it.

For example, we asked ChatGPT, “Can you make this bio sound better: I write technology stories.” Within seconds, he created a much more complex bullet point that incorporated a professional tone and made that simple sentence more complex, as seen in the photo. Once you’ve got the result, you can always tell ChatGPT to tweak it further with queries like “Make it shorter” or “Can you include (additional details)”.


How much does it cost for ChatGPT to write your bio?

ChatGPT is currently free to use no matter what you use it for, which includes help to continue building.

How can ChatGPT help me with my resume?

ChatGPT can generate text for different parts of your resume, including your professional resume and individual bullet points for each experience. A chatbot can also help improve your current resume by optimizing your current text. If you have questions about how to format your resume and what to include, ChatGPT can give you some answers.

What should a resume contain?

Ideally, you want your resume to highlight all of your career accomplishments. This can include any educational, professional and leadership experiences that are meaningful to you. You also want to include as many details as possible about your unique experiences to help you stand out from other applicants.
