Not to be left behind, workers may wonder if their résumés should showcase their AI skills. They should, experts say, and here’s how to do it.
“Technology such as ChatGPT or other AI iterative technology or generative text technologies are going to play a larger role in practically every industry and that it behooves us to be open minded,” said Amanda Augustine from TopResumé. “It’s a reality in today’s workplace that most people are going to have to dabble or leverage ChatGPT as part of their roles or AI technology in general. It’s becoming part of those roles.”
Research AI vigorously
Augustine recommends that Americans who haven’t already begun using ChatGPT begin familiarizing themselves with the tool.
