Last year, LinkedIn announced the creation of Resume Assistant, the tool that integrates LinkedIn's functions directly into Microsoft Word to help you create a more convincing resume. Today, the LinkedIn Assistant is available for Office 365 subscribers on Windows in some countries, as described in the official LinkedIn blog post.
With over 15 million applications presented on LinkedIn every week, it's important to find the right way to represent your work experiences in a unique way. By regularly updating your resume, you will be one step ahead when it comes to finding your next role in a company.
Improving the curriculum: how to do it with the LinkedIn Resume Assistant
Show off your unique skills and experiences. The assistant gathers information from millions of LinkedIn profiles to inspire you with examples of how other users in similar roles, or roles you aspire to, describe their work experience, directly within Microsoft Word. Use these examples as inspiration to frame your personal experiences or make certain aspects and skills shine to make sure you stand out from the crowd.
The perfect curriculum
Leave the curriculum with one size, the same for everyone. Over 50% of professionals find it difficult to customize their curriculum for a specific role. Resume Assistant provides the best skills of other professionals in the desired role and industry, as well as job requirements arising from real job advertisements. So you can think about how your skills can be communicated to the recruiter for the role you want, so adapt your resume to fit that role.
A successful curriculum help
Look for help along the way. Having an expert who is familiar with the complexity of writing a resume can be a great way to help you flow creativity appropriately. Use ProFinder, the LinkedIn freelance recruitment marketplace, directly through the LinkedIn Assistant, to get in touch with experts who can help you with interviewing techniques, career coaching and writing CVs.
The perfect resume is not enough
The right job for you closer than you think. Write your CV only half the job; the next job is to find the right job for you. After selecting a role and the desired sector, Resume Assistant will highlight relevant job opportunities for you directly in Word. Once you have identified a job that you like, you can go directly to the job position on LinkedIn to learn more about the opportunity and submit your application. You can also allow recruiters to know that you are open to new opportunities by activating Career Interests, which gives you twice the chances of being contacted by recruiters.
We must not forget to let the passion for the job sought, as well as competence, shine through in the CV.
