Revamp Your Resume with Expert Insights: Let ChatGPT Guide You


Stepping into the job market?


A polished, compelling resume is your foot in the door. 


Wish you had a knowledgeable Resume Advisor? Meet ChatGPT!


Why ChatGPT?

Save your money! 


Don't hire a resume writing service. 


Not only is ChatGPT way cheaper… it will write virtually unlimited versions of your resume… customized for each job… in minutes.


And more importantly… once you've created a ChatGPT thread about your resume & the job you are applying to… you can return to that thread to do interview preparation.


How ChatGPT?

Just as you wouldn't expect a career coach to guide you without understanding your background, ChatGPT also performs best when you feed it detailed information. 


I created a series of prompts to help you “TRAIN” ChatGPT to act as an expert Resume Coach.


Watch the tutorial below on how to use these prompts effectively:
