WARNING! I wrote none of the post below. The Empowered Woman Newsletter doesn’t actually exist! It’s the result of me asking ChatGPT to write a newsletter for women returning to work after career breaks for caregiving. I’m sharing so you can see for yourself what it produced in under one minute. I can’t vouch for any of the content, especially the women it references (scary!). If you want to read my real newsletter, addressing how ChatGPT is affecting the job search world, written entirely by me and not a bot, please journey here!
