06:16 - 12:34

  • Chajability has limits in the advice it can give, length of response, and topics it can teach.
  • It won't generate insults or swear at people.

  • The AI isn't self-regulating yet and needs to be managed by users who should double-check its generated data.
  • The book comes with prompts that teach people how to use Chajability effectively.
  • Chajability is bad at counting words but excels at generating content when given specific prompts.
  • Recruiters need to know what's interesting and coach Chajapiri accordingly.

Recruiting with GPT

12:08 - 18:14

  • Context is important for generating better content.
  • GPT can help with candidate interview prep using the STAR methodology.
  • GPT can act as an editor by providing feedback on writing and suggesting improvements.
  • GPT can be used to improve copy to be more inclusive and increase reply rates of minorities.

GPT Capabilities
