It’s one thing to have the best education and work experience you could possibly have, but if you are unable to show it on your resume or make it clear to prospective employers, then it’s kind of moot. This is why being able to craft a good resume is one of the key aspects of landing a job and standing out amongst the applicants.
Now Microsoft has helped users out with that in the past with the LinkedIn resume assistant for Microsoft Word, but now in an announcement on the LinkedIn blog, Microsoft has started rolling out the feature for all of its Office 365 subscribers. For those unfamiliar with the tool, it lets users browse various samples to get an idea of how to craft a resume and write about their experiences.
It also lets users see the top skills other professionals in the role you’re applying for have, which lets users pick and choose the skills that they think will make them a good fit at a particular company. There is also the ProFinder tool that lets users search for freelance experts who can help them better prepare for interviews, resume writing, career coaching, and more.
Microsoft states that the feature is expected to eventually arrive for other operating systems besides Windows, along with other regions and support for other languages, so do keep an eye out for it.
