Why Generative AI is a Game Changer for Your Resume Improvement

There’s no denying that Generative AI, particularly ChatGPT 4.0, is creating ripples in various industries, and its relevance in resume building is definitely not an exception. Some might perceive this as an overhyped opinion, but as a recruiting and staffing firm with an extensive track record and countless resumes under our belt, we assure you that the effectiveness of this technology is far from just hearsay.

Generative AI has the potential to refine an already good resume, or even produce an impressive one from a bare-bones LinkedIn profile. Its interactive nature lets you enhance various sections of your resume, making it more compelling to the human eye and more likely to pass through an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This increases your chances of being recommended to a hiring manager.

What’s particularly striking about this technology is its ability to identify and bolster your skills section.

For instance, let’s compare a real resume section submitted by an actual job seeker:


Detail-driven Human Resources and Accounting Specialist. Proficient in benefits management, accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, onboarding, Invoicing, and employee relations. Tech-Savvy Professional of Microsoft, Google, ADP, Paychex, and ERP systems. With exceptional interpersonal communication, organization, and multitasking abilities.


  • Detail orientated
  • Payroll
  • Scheduling
  • Problem-solving
  • Written and verbal Communication
  • Time management
  • Executive team leadership
  • Computer literacy


And the result after running it through ChatGPT 4.0:


Dynamic and detail-oriented Human Resources and Accounting Specialist with comprehensive expertise in benefits administration, accounts management (payable and receivable), payroll processing, and onboarding procedures. Demonstrated proficiency in utilizing technological tools such as Microsoft Suite, Google Suite, ADP, Paychex, and various ERP systems. Equipped with superior interpersonal, organizational, and multitasking skills, coupled with a strong ability to streamline processes and enhance operational efficiency.


  • Precision and attention to detail
  • Comprehensive payroll management
  • Effective scheduling and coordination
  • Strategic problem-solving abilities
  • Excellent written and verbal communication
  • Superior time management skills
  • Leadership experience with executive teams
  • Advanced computer literacy and tech-savvy proficiency


The contrast in impact is readily apparent. But it’s important to remember, AI is a tool designed to work best in tandem with human intuition and judgment. While AI can elevate the language, it may sometimes include words or phrases you wouldn’t usually use, or occasionally “hallucinate” by adding inaccurate information.

Generative AI is becoming an invaluable ally for job seekers striving to distinguish themselves in a sea of applicants. It allows you to put your best foot forward and ensures you’re judged on your true merit, not based on a poorly presented resume.
