Microsoft Word now has AI-Powered Resume Assistant

Resume Assistant allows users to create better resumes and thus enhance the probability of getting good jobs.


Microsoft has introduced a Resume Assistant in its lineup of Office 365 apps. The company rolled out the Office 365 app integrating LinkedIn tools with Outlook.com earlier this month. This integration allows users to access LinkedIn insights, work history, profile pictures and much more from their inbox in Outlook.com. Microsoft has also introduced Office 365 in 96 new global markets.

According to the company, approximately 80 per cent of resumes the world over are edited in Office Word, so the Resume Assistant could be beneficial for a lot of users.

Backed by Artificial Intelligence, the Resume Assistant allows users to create better resumes and thus enhance the probability of getting good jobs. With this new tool users will be able to customise their resumes according to the relevant LinkedIn job listings displayed on Microsoft Word. In addition to this, the tool allows users to keep abreast of the trends in the job market as it helps identify skills needed for a job role.

 

ProFinder and Open Candidates

With the Resume Assistant users can access LinkedIn tools like ProFinder as well as Open Candidates. The Profinder assists users in writing resumes whereas Open Candidates enables users to share their interests and goals with recruiters listed on LinkedIn.

“Within Resume Assistant you’ll also see relevant job listings from LinkedIn’s over 11 million active job openings to jump start your search. Along with job openings, you’ll see details of what the job requires, helping you to tailor your resume to a specific role,” says a LinkedIn blog post.

The Resume Assistant will be first rolled out to users in the US, Australia, Canada, UK, Germany, Brazil, France, China, Japan, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Ireland, Spain and South Africa. The tool will be available to those users who have opted for Microsoft’s Office Insiders Program.
