Refresh Your LinkedIn Profile and Resume

May 1, 2018

Your LinkedIn profile is often the first impression you make with potential employers, so it’s important that it is always up-to-date and that it represents your professional goals. Once you’ve done this, get a step ahead by updating your resume with Resume Assistant, a new integration with Microsoft Word. Resume Assistant brings LinkedIn insights, such as top skills for your desired role and work experience examples  directly into Microsoft Word so your most current information is front and center when applying for jobs.

Once you select your desired industry or role, Resume Assistant provides real examples of how other professionals are describing their work experience -- such as how they write their profile summary or explain responsibilities in their role -- so you can highlight your skills in the right way to get the job you want.
