Build a cover letter generator

Description

Sometimes students spend more time working on their cover letters, customizing them for each company, than working on their portfolio. And the preliminary screening steps that are based only on cover letters are quite unfair. The goal of this project is to build a model that can automatically generate cover letters from a targeted job and a person’s skills / previous experiences / resume…

Model(s)

I’m open for suggestions but I believe these are good places to start with:

Datasets

This is the hardest part. I already started working on scraping a couple of example resumes from a couple of websites (Indeed…), but we still need to fill the person’s information accordingly.

Challenges

Scrape scarce data for a real-world problem. Fine-tune a state-of-the-art language model.

Desired project outcomes

  • Create a Streamlit or Gradio app on :hugs: Spaces that can generate a cover letter from a targeted job and a person’s resume
  • Don’t forget to push all your models and datasets to the Hub so others can build on them!

Additional resources

A good baseline to compare our model with gpt2 cover letter generator
