Microsoft Word Uses LinkedIn To Assist With Resumes

Microsoft is using an integration with LinkedIn to make resume creation in Word easier. The word processor is adding Resume Assistant, which can pull data from your LinkedIn profile to help you create a better resume. This feature rolls out to Insiders this week.

Based on the industry you're pursuing a job in and the position you want, Resume Assistant intelligently adds info from LinkedIn while you're working on the document. It'll also bring up other people with similar experience so you can see how they've described their work and skills.

Additionally, Resume Assistant will pull in job listings from LinkedIn.
