ChatGPT. An AI writing tool that is taking the world by storm. But is it something you want to show employers you’re good at using? The short answer is yes!

However, it’s essential to know which jobs and industries value AI skills how to properly demonstrate your experience in a way that impresses employers. Sounds overwhelming? Don’t stress.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a handy AI tool that generates human-sounding text quickly and effectively. All you need to do is give it some prompts and keywords, and it creates copy at the speed of lightning (well, almost).

Hiring managers are looking for people who have experience with AI tools because it helps efficiency at work. That’s why they care about it and why you should consider including it on your resume.

AI technology still has a long way to go. It can make mistakes and submit biased or robotic-sounding content. Therefore, company’s value having someone who can oversee and manage their use of ChatGPT.

However, some industries are hesitant to employ someone with ChatGPT experience. They might worry that the candidate is using it as a crutch rather than to improve their workflow. Let’s look at which jobs want to see ChatGPT on their candidate’s resumes and which don’t.

Jobs and industries that value ChatGPT vs ones that don’t

If you’re wondering whether including ChatGPT on your resume is a good idea, take a look at the list below:

Tech jobs do

A huge majority of the tech industry uses AI. For example, to write the script for chatbots on company websites. These jobs need someone to check the script, log keywords, and ensure it’s providing the customer with relevant information.

Teaching jobs do

AI for teaching?! Yup. Many teachers use ChatGPT for lesson planning, but, like the tech industry, they need to ensure it’s providing the correct information.

Writing jobs don't

Although ChatGPT is dominating a lot of content writing jobs, companies who look for human writers (and there are many!) may be wary about it in a job application.

This is because there’s a possibility you lean on AI rather than writing authentic and unplagiarized content.

If you do include it, focus on how you use it as a tool to enhance your writing process.

How to add ChatGPT skills to your resume

  1. Look at the job description to see how the company plans to use ChatGPT.
  2. Jot down some examples of when you’ve used ChatGPT and how it might relate to the job.
  3. Consider how your ChatGPT skills could help the company and what AI experience you have that shows them you can do the job.
  4. Take your notes and write some resume bullet points. Begin with an action verb; tell the recruiter what you did; and finish with a powerful metric. If you’re confused, don’t worry. We’ll go through it in the next section.
  5. Last but not least, run your resume through an AI resume scanner to ensure it’s high-quality and has no mistakes.

Example of ChatGPT skills for your resume

A mistake many people make when creating their resumes is not providing evidence to back up their claims. For instance, writing ‘Can use ChatGPT’ doesn’t tell the employer about your experience using it. Here is an examples of what your Skills section including ChatGPT could look like:

IT Customer Service Manager
Strengthened ChatGPT script in automated customer service chatbot, increasing customer satisfaction by 40%.
Identified missing keywords in ChatGPT customer service tool, improving response time by 60%.
