The career platform announced new AI tools today for Premium members
LinkedIn is rolling out new AI tools to help you find and apply to open jobs, the company announced today (Nov. 1). The career platform likens its tools to a coaching experience for job-seekers. Available to Premium members, the new features will let users interact with a chatbot about open job opportunities, soliciting advice on whether a posted role is a good fit based on your profile, which skills you need to become a better candidate for a posting, or the background on companies you might be interested in working for.
“We always hear from job-seekers that when they come across an interesting opportunity, their biggest pain points [are], Am I a good fit for this role?, and If I am, how do I maximize my chance of getting it?” chief product officer Tomer Cohen told Quartz. The tool aims “to get you much closer to that job, not just with information, but also with confidence.”
The “coaching” is part of a larger set of new AI features rolling out today. In another application, users can generate summaries of posts on LinkedIn with personalized lessons or advice, called Takeaways.
It’s not the first time the company has compared its AI-based tools to a career coach. Last month, LinkedIn released what it called “AI-powered coaching” within its e-learning platform, LinkedIn Learning; the feature allows users to message with a chatbot for advice and content recommendations inside its course library. (It’s also not the first time eagle-eyed observers have noted the company’s interest in AI career coaches: Rumors of its job-seeker coach were reported this summer by app researcher Nima Owji, who scoured LinkedIn code to find a yet-unreleased feature that makes similar promises to today’s tool.)
