Responding to recruiter emails with GPT-3

Like many software engineers, Matt Bilyeu receives multiple emails from recruiters weekly. And, because he’s polite (and for other reasons) he tries to respond (politely) to all of them. But…

It would be ideal if I could automate sending these responses. Assuming I get four such emails per week and that it takes two minutes to read and respond to each one, automating this would save me about seven hours of administrative work per year.

Enter the GPT-3 API and some code that gets run by a future cron job (now that he’s tested this on a handful of emails) and Matt auto-responds to al the emails, continues to be polite, while also saving (his) time. It’s AI Matt responding the way real Matt would.
