Microsoft brings LinkedIn to the Word to help users write their resumes

Microsoft released on Wednesday (8) new to Office 365 that will help anyone who needs to find a replacement in the market and need to give you that slap in the curriculum.

The Resume Assistant is a feature that opens directly in Word, and connects to LinkedIn. He starts to run automatically when the program identifies a document created by the user as being a curriculum.

One of the possibilities that the new feature offers is to give examples of professional experience considered as successful on LinkedIn. He takes descriptions of public profiles in the social network and suggests to the user.

For example, if the person has difficulty to describe its position or its functions, the Resume Assistent search profiles similar to LinkedIn, and suggests the text to put in the curriculum. The user can also create filters by role and area of operation.

The Resume Assistant is based on artificial intelligence to make suggestions to the user based on their experience and on the profiles available in the public mode on LinkedIn. In addition, the functionality will also recommend vacancies that fit the profile of the user.

Word dominates the curricula

Microsoft says that 80% of resumes are edited in Word, then nothing more natural than to unite the strength of the application to a database massive of information on career and job opportunities.

To facilitate the user’s life, the Resume Assistant also works in conjunction with the models of curriculum entered in the application.

The Resume Assistant first arrives for PC users that have a subscription to Office 365, but only as part of the program Office Insiders for a while. The other users should receive the news in the coming months, according to Microsoft.
