Mar 08, 2024 10:13 AM IST

Recruiters can identify that the resumes were written by AI chatbots and this is bad for you, explains senior ex-Google employee.

Bengaluru-based Nupur Dave who worked with Google in San Francisco for 10 years said that job seekers should not use ChatGPT entirely to create their resumes.

These resumes can also be noticed easily as they tend to be too perfect, she said. “Perfectly spaced, capitalised, dash-ed, and contains more description than the average person can invent. Heck, even I, as a writer myself, can't come up with such a word-dance. When your message to me, delivered through the loving arms of AI, says, 'I am particularly drawn to your commitment to providing innovative solutions.' I think, 'Really? Did YOU think so?,” she said.
