As announced on August 9, 2022, Resume Assistant has been removed from Word and is no longer supported.
Note: If you have not yet installed the most recent Office update for your Microsoft 365 subscription, you might still see Resume Assistant in Word. Although you can open the pane, the feature won't work.
Microsoft is committed to improving your Microsoft 365 subscription. As a result, we occasionally remove features and benefits that duplicate equivalent offerings that are available to subscribers.
For creating a resume that gets you noticed by recruiters and hiring managers, we recommend starting with a professionally designed resume template in Word or using the LinkedIn Resume Builder. Once you've created your resume, you can upload it to LinkedIn for job applications or for displaying on your profile.
