Resumes are passé, I built my profile chatbot!

As a Product Manager, my job mainly involves two things -

  1. Understand users’ problems and solve them providing with unique and delightful experiences.
  2. Measure and optimize metrics for growth.

In the job hunt process, I studied the daily routine of Hiring Managers which looks like this -

As a Hiring Manager, one is expected to review dozens of resumes and cover letters daily; which makes it very difficult for them to identify the correct candidate.

Let me introduce you to something very interesting here. Of late, a new kind of interface is evolving rapidly — CUI (Conversational User Interface). CUI mainly involves a chatbot which provides a friendlier way to get things done.

Chatbot is a computer program designed to simulate a conversation with human users, especially over the Internet.

So I built a unique experience (a chatbot) for people who would be reviewing my profile. It works on Facebook Messenger platform and takes the user through my profile.

I encourage you to have a look at it here. Do share your experience in the comments.
