LinkedIn’s Resume Assistant Feature Now Available to All Office 365 Subscribers

Microsoft is rolling out a new Resume Assistant feature for Microsoft Word powered by LinkedIn. The new feature initially launched in a preview, but it’s rolling out to all Office 365 subscribers in selected regions today.

Resume Assistant uses the vast amount of data from LinkedIn in order to analyse and provide suggestions for improvements in your resume. The feature can help you discover things like the top skills for a certain position in an industry, for example. You can also get to see a couple of job vacancies depending your resume, enabling you to adapt your resume to that specific role and apply for it directly from Word. Resume Assistant lets you enable LinkedIn’s Open Candidates system which essentially lets recruiters you know that you’re looking for a job.

Resume Assistant, interestingly, isn’t available in all countries where Office 365 is available. Instead, only users in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa with English as the default language in Word can use the feature.
