Joining the AI bandwagon, LinkedIn started experimenting with AI-powered tools for job seekers last year. Now, the company is rolling out AI-based new features for its premium subscribers who are looking for jobs. The new features include personalised resumé, AI-assisted cover letters, and more conversational job searches.

The recent changes aim to streamline the more time-consuming aspects of searching for a new job. For example, the updated job search feature now lets you search for positions using queries such as "find me a marketing job that's fully remote and pays at least Rs 10,00,000 a year," or "find business development roles in biotech." These are fairly straightforward descriptions.

Once users find a role that interests them, the integrated assistant can provide feedback on their qualifications and assist with their application. They can upload your current resume, and LinkedIn's AI will offer suggestions on what to update based on the job description. This may include recommendations on specific experiences to highlight or the option to rewrite entire sections of the document. Similarly, LinkedIn can generate cover letters based on their experience and the job they are applying for.

Rohan Rajiv, a product manager at LinkedIn, explains that the current tools are meant to serve as a starting point for users rather than a complete solution. He emphasises the goal of making it easier for individuals who struggle with expressing themselves or starting from scratch when creating content. 

While the company is still in the early stages of implementing AI, Rajiv suggests that in the future, more of the job application process could be automated. He envisions a horizon where tasks like crafting a resume could be handled with minimal input, possibly by an AI agent.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has imposed fines on LinkedIn India, Satya Nadella, and eight other individuals for breaching the significant beneficial owner norms under the Companies Act. Satya Nadella is the CEO of Microsoft, which acquired the professional networking platform LinkedIn in December 2016. In a 63-page order, the Registrar of Companies (NCT of Delhi & Haryana) stated that LinkedIn India and the individuals had violated the Significant Beneficial Owner (SBO) norms under the Companies Act, 2013.
