Microsoft releases LinkedIn Resume Assistant AI for Word

Microsoft has released LinkedIn powered Resume Assistant AI for Office 365 subscribers. The AI-based helper sifts through LinkedIn profiles to find prominent examples of work experience and skill listings for your dream job, giving you some helpful tips for customizing your CV.

You can also tap the ProFinder marketplace to talk to experts who can offer advice, and search for relevant jobs without leaving Word. Resume Assistant’s requirements are currently quite stiff: in to Office 365, you need to use Word in English and set Windows’ region to one of several countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa and the US).

Support for other platforms, countries and languages will have to wait until sometime in the “coming months.” Still, it’s a start — and if you do live in the right place, this might be enough to help you stand out in a crowded field of applicants.

Here’s how you can make the most of Resume Assistant:

  • Showcase your unique skills and experience. Resume Assistant gathers insights from millions of LinkedIn profiles to inspire you with examples of how others in similar roles – or aspirational roles – describe their work experience, directly within Microsoft Word. Use these examples as inspiration to frame your own personal experiences or shine a spotlight on your unique set of skills to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
  • Ditch the one-size-fits-all resume. More than 50% of professionals find it challenging to customize their resume for a specific role. Resume Assistant provides the top skills other professionals in your desired role and industry have, as well as job requirements from real job postings. You can then think about how your applicable skills can be transferable for the role you want, then tailor your resume to fit that role.
  • Seek out help along the way. Having an expert who’s familiar with the intricacies of writing a resume can be a great way to help you get the creativity flowing. Use ProFinder, LinkedIn’s freelance hiring marketplace, directly from Resume Assistant, to connect with experts who can help you with interview techniques, career coaching, and resume writing.
  • The right job for you is closer than you think. Writing your resume is only half the journey; finding and landing the job that’s right for you comes next. After selecting a role and desired industry, Resume Assistant will surface relevant job opportunities for you directly within Microsoft Word. Once you spot a job you like, go directly to the job opening on LinkedIn to learn more about the opportunity and apply. You can even let recruiters know that you’re open to new opportunities by turning on Open Candidates, making you twice as likely to hear from recruiters.
