Will ChatGPT Take My Job?

Are you a writer?

Do you write copy for catalogs, manuals, packaging or just about anything else?

Do you consider yourself quirky, irreverent and oftentimes sarcastic? No? That doesn’t matter.

Yep, ChatGPT is going to take your job if you’re a writer. It can do everything you can do.

Plus, it’s not lippy to its overlords. It doesn’t complain about sitting through random meetings that aren’t important to it. It doesn’t even ask for much money.

So, what can you do?

Well… You can always look into a different occupation. Although, to be fair, I’m not sure what job AI isn’t coming for eventually.

For now, you could also learn to make ChatGPT work for you.

Let’s face it, who likes to write boring copy? And, honestly, most of it is boring copy. Sure, sometimes you get write fun stuff that shows up in a spot somewhere awesome. But most of the time you’re writing about what makes a t-shirt better than another t-shirt or trying to explain how to open a box.

Have ChatGPT write the boring stuff for you. Beat your bosses and clients to it. Charge more for less time and let them know that you’re utilizing ChatGPT (or whatever AI you’re comfortable with) as a starting point for their copy.

Learn the fine art of becoming a ChatGPT prompt writer. Know what to ask and how to ask it. Once you’ve nailed it, you’ll start getting better results from ChatGPT, giving you a better starting point.

Then, fine tune it. Don’t just leave it as is it. Half of what ChatGPT does is just decide what should word pattern should follow another word pattern based on what it has previously read.

Go through the copy. Fix it. Tweak it. Give it your personality.

It’ll save you time, it’ll save your billable hours and it’ll save your clients a little cash.

“Hey, client X. I know you’ve seen/read about/started trying to replace me with ChatGPT. I wanted to let you know that I’ve started implementing it into my workflow as well and am focusing on writing the prompts to get ChatGPT to give us what we need. It won’t work for everything you ask for, but for the majority it’s going to give us a great starting point and will save time. I’ll finesse what it creates to give it brand X’s voice. However, while it’s going to save time, I’m more in demand now as a ChatGPT prompt writer, so my hourly rate has gone up a bit…”

Good luck and stay safe out there when playing with the robot overlords.
