LinkedIn is launching new AI-powered tools to assist users with finding work, customizing their resumes, and even receiving chatbot guidance. However, these new capabilities will only be available to Premium customers globally and will only be available in English.

With one tool, you can use natural language to type a prompt to search for jobs on LinkedIn. LinkedIn Chief Product Officer Tomer Cohen used the phrase “find me a remote marketing job in Detroit that pays at least $110,000” as an example in a blog post. I can see this being a helpful method to look for possible jobs if the outcomes are excellent.

Additionally, LinkedIn may evaluate your resume and offer specific guidance on how to make it better for a particular job posting. According to a blog post by LinkedIn’s Rohan Rajiv, you will be able to upload a resume, receive feedback, and “make edits interactively with AI”. You can also use an AI-powered tool to create a cover letter “from scratch.”

LinkedIn began testing additional Premium-only AI-powered capabilities late last year, such as the ability to summarize posts from your LinkedIn feed. These features complement those already available.

LinkedIn offers more services than merely AI job matching. Additionally, it’s starting to test AI personas of a few experts with whom you can speak to discuss topics related to business. (They resemble LinkedIn’s version of Meta’s chatbots based on celebrities.) According to Cohen, “the responses you’ll receive are customized to each learner’s specific needs and are a blend of insights that are trained by experts.” Alicia Reece, Anil Gupta, Dr. Gemma Leigh Roberts, and Lisa Gates are among the teachers on the list.

Although it didn’t provide many details, the company also promised to use generative AI to enhance the platform’s search function more generally. “Every search interaction becomes smarter with our new search capabilities—whether you’re looking to find someone, explore jobs, conduct outreach, or seek knowledge and answers,” says Cohen. “AI is going to completely transform search, allowing you to use LinkedIn search to dig deeply and widely into any subject.” Cohen states that improvements to the search function will be released “in the coming weeks.”
