LinkedIn is rolling out AI-based ChatGPT functionality in its platform. The AI functionality should help users create engaging profile sketches and headlines. In addition, recruiters can create better job descriptions for their job postings.

The latest version of the generative AI model is being deployed for end users. They can use it, according to LinkedIn, to further personalize their profiles and create attractive headlines.
Based on the suggestions and text provided by the AI tool, users can customize the profiles as desired. According to LinkedIn, the use of the AI functionality should allow users to spend less time and energy in creating a profile.
The GPT-4 functionality is available immediately, exclusively for LinkedIn Premium users who are among LinkedIn’s “most active members. With the feedback provided by these users, the platform plans to improve the integrated functionality.
GPT-3.5 for recruiters
