Your client wants to apply for a job and they need to discover if it matches their skills. In seconds, ChatGPT or Bard can tell you if there is a fit.
It’s pretty cool!
I do this conversationally as the Bot can’t fit ALL the necessary data in one prompt.
If you try to cut and paste too much, it won’t tell you that content doesn’t fit and is cut off; it will just cut it off.
Plus, I really like being conversational with it when I’m working here alone from home.
I use cut and paste and DO NOT clean up format.
As you can see, the target job description still got cut off as it stops mid-word, but I made sure we weren’t losing anything critical.
Here’s what I entered to discover if a job target matched my clients skills:
