In a recent test, job applications were created by the ChatBot "ChatGPT" ...It fooled business recruiters so well 80% of the applications were offered interviews! U of H Assistant Dean Jamie Belinne is not surprised because recruiters are looking for an application that closely matches their job description. " "'ChatGPT' is going to look at the data and then 'say' whatever it has to 'say' to match the job description. But --- more human beings don't take the time to tailor their application and resume to the job they're applying for!"
ChatGPT has written resumes, job applications and even cover letters that have fooled H R recruiters who have offered the fake applicants more interviews than the human ones! Dean Belinne says that's because the bot just follows the job description to a tee - and recruiters like that. "I was a recruiter for a long time - and it was sooooooo easy to reject applicants because so many people didn't put any thought into their applications and resumes! It doesn't take that much effort - so if a computer is going to do it - it will beat out the humans who are not!"
Dean Belinne says as long as personal interviews and some resume fact checking are in place - getting a new job still belongs to humans.
She says the technology only goes so far - because it takes a personal interview to explain how the skills will be used.
