Resume Assistant helps get your creative juices flowing by showing you examples of how real people — in the fields, you’re interested in — describe their work experience and skills.
This feature is available to Office 365 Subscribers only.
Start Resume Assistant
Go to Review > Resume Assistant (The first time you do this, click Get started in the pane).
Type the role you’re interested in, such as project manager, and optionally, an industry, such as computer software. Click See examples, and Resume Assistant shows you work experience descriptions to use as inspiration for writing your own description.
Resume Assistant also shows top skills related to the role, as identified by LinkedIn. For ideas on how to weave pertinent skills into your descriptions, try filtering the examples by the skills you have.
Resume Assistant surfaces open job opportunities that might interest you. Use the short descriptions for ideas on how to tailor your resume even further. When you finish editing your resume, click on these jobs to learn more or apply for the job. You don’t need a LinkedIn account to use Resume Assistant, although you can sign in to LinkedIn (or sign up for an account) when you follow a link from Word to the LinkedIn site.
