QUESTIONS I’VE ASKED CHATGPT
I’m still very much learning about all the capabilities of ChatGPT (and the more time goes the more it learns) but OH MY WORD I’m blown away each time I use it. Here are some recent things I’ve asked of it:
- I’m going to be in Mexico for 5 days. Please create an itinerary that includes good food, bars, events, and is romantic
- I want to reach out to an old friend and ask her for job advice. We haven’t spoken in a couple months though. How do I phrase the message?
- I have a web app that has xyz features and does x. How do I make the web app better? What additional functionalities can I add?
- Here is my resume (Insert resume through pasting). How can I make it better?
