ChatGPT Prompts for Resume

ChatGPT Prompts for Resume

ChatGPT can be a good resource for writing your resume from scratch or strengthening it.

Because ChatGPT is used for a lot of writing and proofing, you can provide prompts that can help write a good resume that will help you stand out.

Apart from just checking and proofreading, ChatGPT can also help with keyword research for your resume because most resumes pass through Applicant Tracking Software (ATS) where resumes are filtered (and sometimes deleted) based on the keywords of the job posting.

What are Prompts?

ChatGPT prompt is a phrase or instruction that is given into the ChatGPT AI model to generate a response. A ChatGPT prompt can be anything from a statement, question or any word that can spark engagement.

A prompt can something like “What is the difference between quel and quelle in French” or “Explain this piece of code: [Paste Code]”

While simple prompts like the above work, they do not provide the best results.

Best Practices for Writing ChatGPT Prompts

Here are some of the things you should do to write good prompts and get the best results from ChatGPT

  1. Be clear: Don’t provide ambigous and vague statements. Be as clear as you can for the best results.
  2. Simplicity: The more you simplify what you’re saying the more ChatGPT gives out answers related to what you want.
  3. Be specific: Provide as much details as possible for better results
  4. Provide context: Give examples and scope of what you want. If you’re looking for a software engineering job, make sure to state the position as well (front-end, back-end, fullstack).
  5. Role-playing: ChatGPT gives out better results if you tell it to pretend like someone. Example if you’re preparing for a presentation about something you can tell it to pretend to be like a student who doesn’t know anything about the topic and ask questions.

Using ChatGPT to Review Your Resume

  • What appropriate sections to add for making my resume more readable
  • How to make my resume easier to scan
  • What kind of numbers and results can I add to my resume
  • What type of action verbs should I choose
  • Am I using too many buzzwords and how to replace them, if so

Your Digital Presence as Your Resume

In the last decade, the traditional way of being hired was always done through resumes.

While it still is true right now, it is not the only way to get hired. There is another side.

The side where your digital presence is your resume. Specifically your 𝕏/Twitter account

 

You no longer have to display all your experiences on a piece of paper.

What you share and talk about online is what will get you hired.

And this is how all of Hypefury’s team members were hired. No formal education, no long processes.

Just Yannick or Samy (Hypefury’s founders) tweeting about the job openings and people applying.

Twitter is the new resume

And not only Hypefury does this. A lot of startups do this. If you want to be hired by Fortune 500 companies then you need to go through the traditional way.

But if you want to work for startups then you need to play the game of Twitter. And there is no other tool to help you than Hypefury. Give it a try for 7 days free and see how your game improves.
