Microsoft has released its LinkedIn-powered Resume Assistant for Office 365 subscribers. Last year the LinkedIn Resume Assistant integrated with the power of LinkedIn directly into Microsoft Word so as to help one to craft the most compelling resume. Now, Resume Assistant is available to Office 365 subscribers on Windows to help users portray the best version of them to get the best job that they love.
Over 15 million job applications being submitted on LinkedIn every week, it is important to find the right way to represent the unique experiences. By updating the resume one will already be one step ahead when it is time for one next role.
The list that can make the most of Resume Assistant:
