After a few months of testing with Insiders, Microsoft's new Resume Assistant is now broadly available for all Office 365 subscribers. The feature, which Microsoft first announced last November, leverages integration with LinkedIn to help you put together a solid resume within Microsoft Word.
Resume Assistant works by pulling in data from LinkedIn and applying a little AI assistance to help you hone your resume for your field. The assistant can help you see how top people in your field are presenting their work experience, identify the top skills for the job you're seeking, and customize your resume based on actual job postings.
In addition to helping you craft a targeted resume for the job you're seeking, Resume Assistant includes ProFinder, a service that connects you with experts who can "help you with interview techniques, career coaching, and resume writing," Microsoft says. Once you're ready, Resume Finder can connect you to job openings you can apply to on LinkedIn.
Resume Assistant is the latest example of an integration stemming from Microsoft's 2016 acquisition of LinkedIn. Previously, Microsoft integrated LinkedIn profiles into Outlook.com, allowing you to get a quick glance at more information about the people with whom you're corresponding.
If you'd like to give Resume Assistant a shot, the feature is now available to Office 365 subscribers in English in select regions around the world.
