ChatGPT is making waves across in recruitment and HR. Forty-six percent of job seekers are using the AI chatbot to write their resumes and/or cover letters, and seven in 10 report a higher response rate from companies, according to a February survey of current and recent job seekers.

The survey also found that 78% of respondents got an interview when using application materials written by ChatGPT; 59% were hired after applying to a job using materials written by ChatGPT; and 11% were denied a job when the interviewer discovered they used ChatGPT.

The primary motivation for job seekers using ChatGPT to write their application materials is to save time. Sixty-nine percent said the materials gave them a somewhat or much  higher response rate from companies. A majority are receiving interviews and job offers as well.
