Robot wrote a job application: Here’s how it went

Looks like Chatbot ChatGPT can do that everything.

The free bot answers the questions put to it. Khrono newspaper online He writes that the robot got a B in the biomedical exam.

Now the NITO Union of Engineers and Technologists has asked to write a job application. The bot was fed the text on the call for A job at Aker Solutions.

“Do you want to play a role in solving energy challenges for future generations?” Rhetorical job advertisement requests.

– Phew-phew

The career counselor at NITO and general manager of the Employment Academy, Vigdis Lamberg, did not like it.

The application ends with: “I look forward to hearing from you and can offer opportunities for personal development in a large international group, opportunities to develop towards greater responsibility, salary according to agreement and good pension and insurance schemes.”

Here, the algorithm picked up job seekers information from the employer and didn’t understand the context. Sending something like this completely uncritical would be a total crisis for you as a job seeker and cause the application to go straight into the employer’s box, says Lamberg.

The application must be written in person. There are courses and recipes for that. The app should make the best possible impression that will make them want to talk to you.

Lamberg also believes that the robot has fallen into another classic trap.

Every sentence begins with “I”. it’s phy-phy.

worked before

the three unions in finance; NITO, Negotia and Finansforbundet believe that knowledge about artificial intelligence (AI) in Norway is very weak.

Now they will launch a guide and podcast series to increase knowledge.

– One of the big challenges here is that this happens so quickly, that legislation always comes later. We have to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with what’s happening, because developments are moving very quickly, says NITO President Trond Markussen in Permit.

Jill Walker Rittberg, professor of digital culture at the University of Bergen, agrees with Markussen. She believes that artificial intelligence is here to stay. However, a robot cannot replace humans.

ChatGPT doesn’t do everything. Writes semi-decent job applications. She is “hallucinating” and making things up. It combines words that tend to occur at the same time. She says she has no ability to think logically or to check facts.

– This is where we humans have to come up with logic and check facts and emotions. There is still a lot that we humans need, the interaction we need.

– More efficient

Sky News wrote earlier That ChatGPT has been used to apply for a job.

UK communications agency Showa was looking for people who could write in an engaging and exciting way. In the ad, they asked the applicant for a “300-word script about the secret behind good writing.”

Less than 20 percent of applicants are selected for an interview at a communications agency. Among the texts displayed was text written by ChatGPT.

– His employer told Sky News he was more competent than many of the bad guys who apply to us.

He was very surprised that the robot had written the text

Use carefully

Abelia is an NHO Association for Knowledge and Technology Businesses. Abelia’s Head of Technology and Digitalization, Jo Eikeland Roald, believes the NITO experience shows that you can’t leave job hunting to robots.

At the same time, AI, when used in the right way, can have positive effects in many areas. Perhaps for some, this will contribute to improving the structure and flow of the app, or ensuring that relevant information is included, Roald writes in TV 2.

ChatGPT chatbot was launched in November last year. So it’s still pretty new. Roald believes immature AI should be used with caution.

AI should avoid reinforcing bias rooted in the organization’s history. For example, favoring men as managers, or overlooking intelligent applicants with non-Western names. You must use technology correctly.
