#032: LinkedIn & ChatGPT For Architecture Resumes & Cover Letters (Prompt For Critique & Refinement)

In partnership with

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Architecture Insights newsletter. Artificial intelligence for architects, landscape architects, and designers.

Meta has released their most capable model to compete with ChatGPT 4 and Claude 3. Additionally, Adobe has announced an AI-powered image enhancer that can improve image quality by up to 8 times. They have also introduced more updates to their popular AI tool, Firefly.

This Week In AI

Meta & Llama 3

Meta recently released two new versions of Llama 3 large language model (LLM) - Llama 3 8B and Llama 3 70B. Here's why these updates are relevant for architects and design professionals:

Meta is working on increasing the context window size for Llama 3, allowing it to process and understand longer pieces of text. This could be beneficial for working with lengthy design briefs, technical reports, or legal documents, enabling the AI to provide more accurate summaries and insights.

There are plans to develop specialized versions of Llama 3 that are experts in specific domains like engineering and architecture. These domain-specific models could potentially provide more accurate and relevant assistance for tasks related to architectural design, construction, and project management.

VideoGigaCAN by Adobe

Adobe has announced a new video upscaling model called VideoGigaGAN that can upsample a video up to 8x while adding rich details.

The model can take low-resolution, blurry video input and produce high-quality, sharp output with impressive detail, even in areas like faces, skin, hair, and water movement.

This technology could be highly relevant for architects and landscape architects, as it allows them to take low-quality footage or renderings of their designs and upscale them to create stunning, photorealistic visuals.

Adobe Firefly 3 Updates

Almost every month Adobe releases new updates to Firefly and its suite of AI tools. We have already explored the recent Structure Reference feature but here are the key takeaways from their most recent update for Firefly 3:

  • Generates more photo-realistic images, especially for scenes featuring people.

  • Expanded range of output styles including illustrations, photographic art, and vector art.

  • Better ability to accurately reflect longer and more complex text prompts. Enhanced quality of text rendering within generated images.

  • Features like "Generative Expand" that can automatically fill and resize images.


If you have ever considered creating your own customized AI trained on your project and company data, then this week’s sponsor, AE Studio is the software to explore those possibilities.

Hire a world class AI team

Engineers who understand AI are expensive and difficult to find, and it can be hard to figure out who to trust. On top of that, 85% of all AI projects fail.

But AE Studio succeeds.

We listen to your business challenge and help you craft and implement the optimal AI solution with our team of world class AI experts from Harvard, Stanford and Princeton.

Our development, design, and data science teams work closely with founders and executives to create custom software and AI solutions that get the job done. The secret to our success is treating your project as if it were our own startup.

Resume & Cover Letter Critiques

Upload an image of your resume or cover letter to ChatGPT or an alternative.

Start your prompt with the following:

“I am applying for a position as a {Position title} at {name of firm}. I have attached my (resume or cover letter) and would like you to review my credentials and offer a critique of it and let me know which areas stand out as good and which areas I might consider changing based on the below job description taken from LinkedIn.”

Attach your resume or cover letter

Copy and paste the job description from LinkedIn. Here is an example:

Architectural Designer Roles

Include all content from the 'About the job' section to the end of the job description. Include any other relevant information about the position that ChatGPT should know.

Try this approach and assess ChatGPT's response.

Repeat to refine your answer. Ask for multiple refinements and engage in a conversation with GPT to get the best results.

Make sure to review every output generated by ChatGPT as it may give false information such as recommending the addition of credentials to your cover letter or resume that you may not have.

Adding emphasis on technical skills over personal achievements (and vice versa) can guide the language model to prioritize and enhance specific areas.

You can further prompt ChatGPT to ask you interview questions based on the job information and even search the web to compare your resume or cover letter to others in the same occupation.
