For the longest time, LinkedIn has attempted to be a social network that brings together professional resources, but its had a tough time shedding the fact that its just a jobs site. Well, it seems with this latest announcement that maybe its current owner, Microsoft, is ready to just embrace the “job placement” title with open arms.
Microsoft today has announced that its resume builder tool, Resume Assistant, is now available for Office 365 customers. The Resume Assistant pulls data from your LinkedIn profile and inserts it into a Microsoft Word document through a template.
Last year, we announced Resume Assistant, which integrates the power of LinkedIn directly into Microsoft Word to help you craft your most compelling resume yet. Today, Resume Assistant is available to Office 365 subscribers on Windows to help showcase the best version of you and land the job you love.
If employers didn’t have enough reason to block LinkedIn at work in the past, there may be even more of a reason now.
