Today, at LinkedIn’s headquarters in San Francisco, weannounced Resume Assistant, a new feature in Microsoft Word to help Office 365 subscribers craft compelling resumes with personalized insights powered by LinkedIn. With over 80 percent of resumes updated in Word, Resume Assistant helps job seekers showcase accomplishments, be more easily discovered by recruiters, and find their ideal job.
The workplace is changing, impacting not only how people work, but also the frequency with which they change roles, introducing new challenges for job seekers. Nearly 70 percent of people say they have difficulty portraying their work experience effectively, and 50 percent struggle to tailor their resume to a specific job opportunity. Furthermore, job applications on LinkedIn have increased 40 percent year-over-year, signaling increased competition for jobs.
What a great feature! As a company focused on delivering resume writing services we're continually looking to introduce our clients to new tools that they can use to help them overcome the challenge of writing a resume.
We'll be sure to let our clients know about this! Thanks for sharing.
