AI Can Help You in the Job Search, Too

Artificial intelligence, or AI, seems to be all that anyone is talking about these days. It’s a topic that’s frequented in our social circles, in our careers and in current events. This technology has found a way to be integrated into even the most robust areas of our lives. So, what should we do? We should take advantage of it, of course! In this post, we will show you some ways that you can take advantage of AI as you enter or re-enter the job market. 

1. Transforming Resumes and Writing Cover Letters

Did you know that, in some cases, resumes are no longer being sent straight to the recruiter? Many recruiters use AI tools to screen resumes as a part of the recruitment process. This means that if your resume is not well-written and relevant to the job you are applying for, there’s a chance that you won’t make it to the employer. When you use AI, it provides outsourced suggestions you can make to optimize your resume. AI will bring attention to the key skills you have noted having and can help you make a clear and concise point. The same can be done for your cover letter. Tell AI what your skills are and what skills the job requires, and the technology will find a connection for you to explore.

2. Professional Photography

LinkedIn is a great job-seeking platform because it allows you to directly interact with employers. Despite the opportunities you can receive through LinkedIn, this tool is only useful if you have a professional and up-to-date profile. A part of your perceived professionalism is your appearance, and professional headshots can range from $75-$350 per session. Now, without paying this hefty price, you can upload a few personal use photos and AI generates them into professional headshots. The AI headshot generator will update the background of your photo and the clothing you are wearing. 

3. Tailoring Job Recommendations

Sometimes we spend too much time deciding on the specific job title we want. When our efforts are energetically unbalanced, we tend to neglect the things that matter the most, aka the actual job application. With AI, you can input what your interests, personality, and skillsets are. Technology then narrows down the job roles you could thrive in based on your personality. 

4. Answers to the Tough Q’s

By now, we know that AI can answer almost any question. You could ask AI for commonly asked interview questions and the answers employers may be looking for. With this tool, you could prepare for your interview and be fast thinking when you get asked each question. Not only will being prepared ease your nerves, but it will also give you a better chance of impressing the interviewer. 

Taking it higher with Hiration

As you can see, there are a variety of ways you could use AI to make your job search more efficient. Centriq invests in AI to help our students with their job search.  We provide students access to a platform called Hiration that assists students in optimizing their resumes, LinkedIns, and cover letters, and provides AI-powered mock interviews/interview feedback. where they can do mock interviews and be evaluated. 

Resume and Cover Letter Support 


The Hiration program also scores your resume and cover letter by industry standards, offering you specific changes that need to be made to score higher. Another notable feature of the program is that you can copy the job description you are interested in alongside your resume. The technology will analyze whether you would be a good fit for the job, or in what ways you could tailor your resume to fit.

At Centriq, imparting the skills and resources to place students in job roles and ensuring success is our first goal. We use Hiration as an additional mode of preparation for our students, and our Career Services team is readily available to support and be a liaison to employers. 

Hopefully, you now feel comfortable and more informed about taking advantage of the benefits of AI throughout the job search.  Reach out to us to learn more about how we’re using artificial intelligence in our curriculum to keep our students competitive.
