Key Features

AI-Assisted Resume Writing

The core functionality of my platform revolves around AI-assisted resume writing. The team uploads the customer’s existing resume, specifies their target role and experience level, and the AI will generate a series of questions to gather additional information and quantified achievements. This interactive process ensures that the resulting resume is tailored, comprehensive, and highlights the user's accomplishments in a compelling manner.
  • Expert Review and Feedback: The platform conducts an expert review of the resume, evaluating various parameters such as the presence of quantified achievements, skills listed, length, impact, and additional details. This review is provided to the user for free, offering valuable insights to further refine their resume.
  • Resume Analysis and Question Generation: The AI analyzes the user's existing resume, identifying areas that require quantification or additional details. It then generates relevant questions to help the user provide specific, measurable achievements related to their target role.
  • Bullet Point Rewriting: The AI rewrites the resume's bullet points using a structured format that emphasizes the result, context, and action, while seamlessly incorporating any quantified achievements provided by the user.
  • Complete Resume Generation: In addition to enhancing an existing resume, the platform can generate a brand-new, high-quality resume from scratch based on the user's target role, experience level, and quantified achievements.

Platform Development and My Learnings

The development of this platform involved an iterative process spanning multiple months, during which I acquired valuable skills in prompt engineering and workflow optimization. Key learnings and achievements include:
  • Prompt Engineering: I progressed from basic prompts to highly sophisticated prompt engineering techniques, including:
    • Providing explicit roles and system instructions to the AI
    • Breaking down tasks into a chain of thought reasoning process
    • Providing examples and additional formatting instructions
    • Incorporating cross-checking and output improvement steps
  • AI Model Selection and Optimization: I explored and leveraged the latest state-of-the-art language models, starting with GPT-3.5 and progressing to GPT-4, GPT-4 Turbo Preview, GPT-4 Turbo, and finally, GPT-4 Omni. This allowed for continuous improvement in the platform's output quality.
  • Workflow Streamlining: I developed a user-friendly workflow within the no-code Glide platform, enabling semi-skilled employees to efficiently utilize the AI-powered features. This included implementing simpler methods for emailing customers and writers, as well as integrating workflow elements to track customer status (unpaid, paid, completed).
  • Cost Optimization: By strategically utilizing GPT credits through the API and using the latest model which is cost-effective, I optimized the platform's cost, spending only around $30-60 per month as operating costs.

Platform Performance and Impact

My AI-powered resume and career services platform has demonstrated significant improvements in quality, turnaround time, and customer satisfaction:
  • Quality Improvement: My experience over 2.5 years in the industry has shown that the AI's resume writing capabilities surpass those of 95% of human writers, with only the top 5% exhibiting superior skills.
  • Reduced Turnaround Time: The platform has dramatically reduced the time required to deliver high-quality resumes and career services to customers by 85%.
  • Customer Feedback and Adoption: Over the past year, the platform has been successfully utilized for approximately 500 customers, receiving positive feedback on the improved quality and reduced delivery times.
  • Revenue Generation: The platform has contributed to generating revenue of approximately $50,000-$60,000 by assisting in the resume writing and career services process.
  • Enterprise Collaboration: I have leveraged the platform's capabilities to collaborate with a large company, using AI to create high-quality executive profiles, resulting in a revenue of $10,000 while significantly reducing timelines and costs.
While the platform has shown promising results, I acknowledge that some customers may find the number of questions generated by the AI (10-20) to be excessive. However, I emphasize that answering these questions is crucial for dramatically improving the quality of the resume. To address this concern, I position the platform as a collaborative and helpful tool, encouraging customers to answer at least some of the questions, even if not all.

Future Developments

I am continuously exploring new ways to enhance the platform's capabilities and expand its reach. One upcoming experiment involves auto-generating resumes at a lower cost, formatting them in a Word document, conducting basic checks, and delivering them to customers. This approach aims to provide an accessible and cost-effective solution for a broader audience.
Overall, my AI-powered resume and career services platform represents a pioneering effort in leveraging advanced language models to revolutionize the job search process. By combining cutting-edge technology with a human-centric approach, the platform empowers individuals to present their professional achievements effectively, increasing their chances of success in the competitive job market.
