The ChatGPT chatbot created a test task for Schwa Consulting Agency. It was one of the test papers that were submitted to the HR department. Neil Teylor was the creator of the agency and he decided to test the bot’s ability to deceive his employees.
According to Taylor, the work turned out to be “more competent” than the texts of many candidates – it was shortlisted, and not only representatives of the HR team were checked, but also the software used by the relevant department. The “impostor” was not identified by either the software or the human team.
ChatGPT, along with other applicants, was given the task of writing about the secrets to good writing. The deadline was kept to 300 words. Schwa wanted an engaging and compelling story. ChatGPT says the key to good copywriting is the ability to tell a great story. Artificial intelligence told me, among other things, to read and study other writers and not be afraid of editing pre-written texts. No one can give the best advice the first time. The bot acknowledged that success is not just about hard work but creativity and talent. Because recruiters had access to applicants’ names and resumes, they were unable evaluate only the work directly related.
“AI was much more competent than a lot of people who sent us applications. This was a tough test, considering that all we do is create amazing things that attract attention.Taylor concluded.
According to the Schwa founder, in order to pass the test, he had given the bot specific instructions. These included the instruction to write in the style used by Dave Trott (Dave Trott). According to Taylor, Taylor was also upset at his admission about the source of the text to an employee who had conducted the selection. But he admitted that the assignment took a lot of time.

ChatGPT became available to all users at the end of November. It quickly gained more than a million customers thanks to its ability generate very meaningful texts (not necessarily reliable) and program code (not often working correctly). Beatrice Nolan, an employee of Business Insider, used ChatGPT previously to create two cover letters. Then she asked professional recruiters to rate the quality. They said they were only talking about “suitable candidates” and would have waited to be invited by HR. However, recruiters said that the letters lack personality.
