LinkedIn’s Game-Changing AI Tools for Job Seekers

While many worry that AI will replace jobs, LinkedIn is leaning on its power to help you land your next opportunity. The platform’s latest AI-driven features are revolutionizing job hunting, making it smarter and more efficient.

The image depicts a smartphone screen showing LinkedIn’s job search interface. At the top, there's a search bar with the phrase "Find me" partially typed. Below, it displays job collections for various categories like Flex PTO, Telehealth, and BioTech. The screen also lists job postings for a Data Analyst position in Glendale, CA, with details like salary range, company name, and recruiting status. This interface highlights LinkedIn’s user-friendly features for job seekers, including personalized job collections and detailed job postings.

LinkedIn's newest update allows you to use natural language queries to find jobs. Simply type something like "Find me a remote software engineering job in New York with flexible hours," and LinkedIn’s AI will do the rest. 

The new AI features on LinkedIn can also help you refine your resumé and cover letter and get personal advice. These features are available to premium users.

Since October 2023, LinkedIn has introduced several AI-powered tools to enhance the job-hunting experience:

  • AI-Powered Job Recommendations: By analyzing your profile and activity, LinkedIn's AI suggests jobs that fit your skills and experience. This ensures you’re always aware of the best opportunities suited to your career path.
  • Personalized Messaging: AI helps you craft personalized icebreakers for initiating conversations with potential employers or networking contacts, eliminating the friction of starting meaningful professional interactions.

LinkedIn’s AI strategy does not only target candidates but also recruiters. You can explore how LinkedIn has used AI to ease hiring

Other AI tools that can help you with your job search are resume.io, jobscan, and Crystal.
