November 8, 2019


Hey, I’m Raanah with Office 365. Crafting a great resume can be a daunting task. Showcasing your accomplishments and describing your work experiences in the best way possible is a challenge! That’s where the new Resume Assistant in Microsoft Word comes in. It’s powered by LinkedIn to help you craft a compelling resume and land your dream job. In Resume Assistant, you can draw inspiration from other professionals By seeing how they describe their work experiences. You can even dive into the skills people highlight on their LinkedIn profiles and if you have them, add them to your resume to make sure you stand out to recruiters. As you’re crafting your resume, make it even more compelling by tailoring the descriptions of your work experiences to open job opportunities. Once your resume shines, you can save it as a document, easily apply to jobs on LinkedIn and even let recruiters know you’re open to new opportunities. So whether you’re polishing an existing resume, creating a new one, or looking for your dream job Word can assist.

    AND HOW IS THIS TRENDING

  • Reply MrRicearonie November 8, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    I can’t believe that people are upset about this being trending. It’s got about 700 views when I am writing this! 700!!!! In 2005 that would be a lot! So congratulations Microsoft of making a video that has a lot of views when the site first opened.

    how much did microsoft pay to be on trending? nobody watched anyway

  • Reply hillel ess November 9, 2017 at 12:01 am

    Sure… There's absolutely nooooo monetary influence on YouTube's algorithm… that's why commercials with 1000 views somehow outpace millions of other videos. Guys, this shows one of two options, either YouTube's popularity is dying or you guys are giving precedence to big bucks… I call bullshit.

    So, Microsoft and LinkedIn have joined forces to plagiarize other people's work and encourage those writing a resume to copy off what someone else (an uncompensated resume writer) has said. Not only is this unethical profiteering on the part of Microsoft* and LinkedIn, but it also discourages people from listening to their own voice and evolving their career to their own best benefit. It creates a false sense of confidence, implying that a jobseeker, by using "good sounding phrases," can get ahead; when, in actuality, a jobseeker may get in the door but will get off on the wrong foot the moment they open their mouth. It will become immediately apparent they don't sound like their resume. This takes the emphasis off what a person can do for a prospective employer, instead making for an unnecessary sense of dishonesty because of the incongruence.

    *Hey, Microsoft — the Professional Association of Resume Writers called you on this back in 2000, remember? …when you tried this in collaboration with McGraw Hill after the publication of the Top 100 Resumes series of books… so you can't claim ignorance.

    I'm concerned that Resume Assistant makes it very easy for users to plagiarize LinkedIn profiles. The video notes "privacy preferences."

    This post contains three options for updating your LinkedIn profile privacy preferences/settings to protect yourself: http://www.avidcareerist.com/2018/01/18/new-linkedin-privacy-setting/

    So when does it get rolled out to the UK? Currently seems to be available in every English speaking country but England (and the rest of the UK). We use CVs rather than resumes but the research features would still be useful.
