Defining your career path is challenging, but it’s a worthwhile exercise. As a recruiter, it’s something I ask job candidates about all the time. While outlining a career path sounds simple enough, there’s a lot more to it. Your career could potentially take you in many different directions depending on your industry, skills, and interests. 

The internet is a great research tool to help you collect, analyze and refine ideas. But you also need to synthesize the data you collect to help you better define viable career paths. Our software recruiters in Toronto have worked with many job candidates recently who mentioned using ChatGT to research career path options and what they entail. So, I’ll talk about how you can use ChatGPT, Google Gemini and other AI tools to support your career research. 

How Can I Use ChatGPT to Help Choose My Career Path?

ChatGPT can be an effective career research tool for job candidates. In particular, it can help job seekers define their career path in three distinct ways:

Match Qualifications to Career Paths

Every person has a unique set of skills, experience and knowledge. You can use this information about yourself to query ChatGPT. Make a list of your skills, certifications, and skills. Write a brief about yourself as a professional. Enter this information into ChatGPT and then ask it to provide you with a list of potential career paths that match your professional experience. 

Once you have a list of potential careers, you can drill down further and conduct more research into the viability of each option. 

Identify Job Titles

Many potential job titles could apply to your career. The way companies define roles can vary, so it’s important to know the different variations of job titles that could be suited to your experience and skills. 

There are a few ways you could use ChatGPT to uncover different job titles:

  • Ask for different variations of job titles for a specific role
  • Ask for a similar job title list based on a specific career
  • Ask for a progression of job titles for a specific career path

You can then use this list to search for job titles on recruiter websites, job boards, and LinkedIn to learn more. 

Career Advancement

ChatGPT can also be a good resource to help you map out your strategy to level up in your career. You can ask it to help you fill in the gap between where you are in your career and where you want to be. AI can provide you with suggestions for skills to add, the next steps to take, and the type of experience you’ll need to acquire to advance your career.
