3 Ways To Use AI Tools To Get A New Beauty Job

By Kirstie McDermott

Artificial intelligence and the beauty industry may not seem like natural bedfellows. But according to market intelligence research, the global size of AI in the beauty and cosmetics market is expected to reach US$13.34 billion by 2030.

In fact, the beauty industry has long been at the cutting edge as a sector that embraces innovation. From beauty tech devices to virtual shopping tools, digital skin analysis, personalisation and virtual “try on” apps, there are a huge number of ways tech solutions are helping the beauty and cosmetics industry thrive.

AI on the agenda

It is no surprise then that AI is on the agenda. Japanese beauty company Shiseido is already ahead of the curve, developing an AI-driven skincare advisor, which is capable of analysing your complexion, before giving you a list of products that will work for you.

Despite the fact that new research from Advertising Week APAC (AWAPAC) has found that 75% of Australians are worried about the impact of adopting AI at work, the technology looks like it is going nowhere fast.

And for those working within the beauty sector, generative AI tools can also be a good way to give them a leg up the job ladder.

From resume creation to cover letters and even interview questions, here are three ways you can leverage AI to get a great new job.

1.   Writing your CV

Doing your CV is definitely one of the more painful parts of job hunting. Most people tend to let it gather dust in between roles and updating it before you apply for a job can be so off-putting, you might think about simply not bothering.

However, the days of spending hours writing, rewriting and honing your resume to make it applicable to each and every job you apply to are over thanks to AI resume writing tools. Check out Skillroads, Rezi and Kickresume, all of which use AI to generate bullet points relevant to the job you’re applying for. They’ll even fill in your education, skills and summary sections. Hurray!

2.   Create a cover letter

Whether you think they are valuable or not, 26% of recruiters will read a cover letter, and they consider them an important part of decision-making when hiring a candidate.

To take the pain out of the process, try Kickresume. It can also help craft your cover letter, as can CoverDoc.ai, using information from your professional social profile combined with information on the job you’re applying for. With cover letter writing consuming a massive portion of job application time, these can be a real lifesaver.

3.   Get some interview coaching

Practising before an interview is a great idea. It can help to focus your answers and give you confidence. Handily, there is an AI tool for that, too.

Google’s Interview Warmup will simulate an interview environment and give you feedback on areas where you could improve, while Adzuna’s interview coach, Prepper, uses AI to generate interview questions based on the role you’re applying for, giving feedback on your answers and offering suggestions as to what you should be saying.

You can also use ChatGPT to generate suggested interview questions based on the description of the role you’re applying for, which can help you to anticipate some of the questions you may be asked.

If you’re ready to flex your generative AI prowess now and search for a new job, the Professional Beauty Job Board is a great place to begin. It’s filled with inclusive companies looking to hire beauty professionals across all sectors and skill levels.
