Nearly half of job seekers using generative AI for resume help: survey

The rise of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools has nearly half of job seekers utilizing such tools to help improve their resumes according to a new survey from Canva.

Canva partnered with Sago to survey 5,000 hiring managers and 5,000 job seekers from the U.S., United Kingdom, India, Germany, Spain, France, Mexico and Brazil to assess the latest trends influencing the job searching and hiring process. The survey found that about 45% of job seekers have used generative AI to build, update or improve their resumes. That figure was highest in India (74%) and Brazil (50%) while it was lowest in France (33%) and Spain (34%).

The survey also showed that hiring managers are receptive to the use of AI by candidates looking to make their resumes more creative. It found that 90% of hiring manager respondents said it’s acceptable to use generative AI in application materials, with 46% saying it should be used minimally to augment an applicant’s ideas and content, and 44% saying it can be used to create any content.
