Meet our GuideWell Chatbot That’s Helping Job Seekers Find Careers

Have you ever wished you had a digital assistant to help you navigate the job search? Many career sites, like our GuideWell careers site, now offer a chatbot, a digital tool that simulates a human conversation online.

Chatbots are used to help jobseekers navigate job openings, get their questions answered and get noticed by potential employers. Our chatbots interact with jobseekers by providing shortcuts to match them to open jobs and answer frequently asked questions via artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

Why use our chatbots, instead of just navigating our company’s career site?

• It’s a one-stop shop for research before applying or interviewing. When you’re applying for a job at GuideWell, you can use the chatbot to find specific jobs, understand how the application process works, learn about company news and information and locate leadership profiles or bios.
