The possibility of using AI to create a CV is a new level in the world of employment. With the breakthrough development of artificial intelligence, we are finding more and more opportunities for it. Is generating a CV a better choice than writing it from scratch?


A deep dive into AI-generated CVs

Let's make one thing clear. When we talk about AI-generated CVs, we mean those created by CV builders, such as ours, that use artificial intelligence technology as one of their functions but still have the personal touch of human writing. So we don't mean artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT, which only provides you with textual information.


Because we are discussing an AI-generated CV, i.e. a ready-to-send document. So far, the available tools, like ChatGPT, are not able to provide this.

You can be confident that the format of such a CV meets the standards of the UK job market.

Advantages of an AI-generated CV

Creating a CV is a difficult and daunting task for many jobseekers. Tools such as our AI CV maker, that balances both AI technology and the content written by career experts, make it a piece of cake.

They guide you through the process step by step. You don’t have to worry about formatting or design, CV maker takes care of that for you.

  • Simple and quick process

    Crafting a CV can be a daunting task, but with AI, it’s a breeze. You’re guided through the process step-by-step, answering straightforward questions about your experiences, skills, and goals. You don’t need to worry about formatting or design – the AI takes care of all that for you. It’s like having a personal assistant to help you create a professional CV without the hassle.

  • Customised to your profile

    One of the coolest things about AI-generated CVs is how personalised they are. The AI analyses your responses to tailor the content specifically to you. It looks at your unique strengths, experiences, and preferences, ensuring that your CV reflects who you are as a candidate. This level of customisation not only saves you time but also makes your CV more impactful and relevant to potential employers.

  • Balanced benefits

    You want to stay ahead of your competition with a CV that’s unique and eye-catching while at the same time being professional and tailored to your individual needs. Balancing expertly written content from our career experts with AI suggestions allows you to get the most out of your CV.

  • Professional looks

    Your CV is often the first impression you make on a potential employer, so it must look polished and professional. With AI-generated CVs, you can rest assured that your document will meet industry standards for formatting and layout. It’s neatly organised, easy to read, and visually appealing, giving you a competitive edge in the job market.

  • Easy editing

    Flexibility is key when it comes to job hunting, and AI-generated CVs offer just that. You can easily edit and update your CV whenever you need to, whether it’s to add new experiences, tweak your skills section, or change the CV design template. This flexibility allows you to tailor your CV to each job application, ensuring that it aligns perfectly with the requirements of the position.

  • Highlighting relevant skills

    In today’s job market, transferrable skills like critical thinking, teamwork, and problem-solving are highly valued by employers. AI-generated CVs are designed to highlight these skills, showcasing your ability to excel in a variety of situations. By emphasising your soft skills, you can stand out from other candidates and demonstrate your suitability for the role.

  • Optimised for Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)

    Many employers use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to screen CVs before they even reach a human recruiter. AI-generated CVs are optimised with the right keywords and formatting to ensure that they get past these ATS filters. This increases your chances of getting noticed by recruiters and ultimately landing an interview.

  • Ready to send

    CV builder provides you with a document that’s ready to send to your potential employers in just a few minutes. Not only that, you can choose the file format for your document. If the job post doesn’t state otherwise, opt for a PDF file.

Cons of AI-generated CV

What if you simply generate your CV with AI tools? It’s a good start to your CV writing but it comes with several drawbacks:

  • You better learn how to format it

    Using AI tools that help you with creating content for your CV is the first step. Now you have to paste it to a text file and format it to comply with the market standards. If you’re not skilled in that you might end up with a blatant-looking document that doesn’t show off your full potential.

  • Easy-to-miss mistakes

    When you quickly generate your text, you may miss important details that would be carefully reviewed if examined section by section. This oversight can lead to errors in your CV. For example, if you don't thoroughly specify your needs, AI might generate a CV for a generic Shop Clerk, including skills that are not relevant to your profile. If these mistakes are not caught, you could unintentionally provide incorrect information to potential employers.

  • Risk of over-reliance on AI technology

    There is a potential risk of relying too heavily on AI technology, leading to a standardisation of CVs and a loss of genuine human connection in the recruitment process. This can result in a recruiter receiving a bunch of CVs that, apart from a few details, are virtually the same. Human touch adds uniqueness to your application,

  • Need for balance

    While AI-generated CVs offer efficiency and convenience, you need to balance these benefits with the need for personalisation and authenticity in your job applications. While there are currently no tools that will unequivocally tell you that your CV has been generated by AI, there may be some in the near future. We wouldn't be surprised if recruiters decide to filter out AI-generated CVs from those that candidates have committed to creating.

Key Takeaways

  • Creating a CV with the help of tools based on artificial intelligence has both advantages and disadvantages.
  • While it is important to remember to carefully analyse an AI-generated CV and check that it does not contain any mistakes, it is really easy and quick to create.
