LinkedIn is Secretly Building An AI Chatbot for Job Search
LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network, is working on an AI chatbot to transform the job search experience for its users. Codenamed "LinkedIn Coach", the generative AI assistant promises to guide job seekers through the entire application process.
Here's what we know so far:
LinkedIn Coach will provide support and advice to help users search for relevant roles on the platform.
It will also offer tips and suggestions to improve users' LinkedIn profiles and networking strategies.
The AI chatbot aims to teach new skills and help connect job seekers with the right people in their fields.
Early details were uncovered by an app researcher, though LinkedIn only said they "will have more to share soon".
If launched, LinkedIn Coach would join the company's existing AI initiatives like AI-powered job recommendation emails and "Recruiter Assistant" AI messages for recruiters.
The move makes sense given Microsoft's massive $10 billion investment in OpenAI, an AI research lab focused on "digital intelligence that benefits all of humanity". Microsoft has integrated AI into many of its products like Bing, Office and Dynamics 365.
It's clear LinkedIn sees AI playing a key role in the future of job searching and networking.
An AI chatbot advisor could completely transform how users navigate the LinkedIn platform, identify opportunities and ultimately land their next role.
