Microsoft Word Gets a Resume Assistant, Powered by LinkedIn

With an aim to help its users craft a compelling resume, LinkedIn has launched a useful feature called Resume Assistant to bring the insights of the professional networking site directly into Microsoft Word.

After you select your desired role and industry, Resume Assistant will pull LinkedIn insights from millions of member profiles so you can see diverse examples of how professionals in that role describe their work.

“Within Resume Assistant you’ll also see relevant job listings from LinkedIn’s over 11 million active job openings to jump start your search.”

“Along with job openings, you’ll see details of what the job requires, helping you to tailor your resume to a specific role,” LinkedIn said in a blog post on Wednesday.

Within Resume Assistant, users will also see the option to turn on Open Candidates. This feature on LinkedIn quietly signals to recruiters that you are open to new opportunities, and makes you twice as likely to hear from recruiters.

Resume Assistant will be rolling out to Microsoft Insiders starting this week on Windows and will be generally available to Office 365 subscribers in the coming months, the Microsoft-owned firm said.

“Figuring out how to put your best foot forward can be challenging when you’re looking for a new opportunity. Your LinkedIn profile should be the first place you go to update your career journey and to reflect your professional experience and interests. Your profile not only helps to establish connections, it ensures that recruiters can find you for new opportunities, and your network can provide the connection to the ones you’re interested in. We also know that a resume is an important part of the recruitment process, and we want your skills, your experiences, and everything you bring to a company to be best represented across your profile and resume,” LinkedIn added.


Apple reportedly looks into making electric powered automobile charging stations

Any electric vehicle maker really worth its salt knows that their motors are most effective as precise as the charging stations that preserve them going for walks… and that consists of Apple, seemingly. Reutersresources remember that Apple is asking charging station manufacturers approximately their era for the sake of its oft-rumored electric vehicle mission. it is not sure how deep the talks move or who is worried(the businesses certainly are not speakme). however, NRG strength issued a vague reaction noting thatit’s speaking to “each capacity manufacturer of day after today.” We would not rule it out, then.

there may be extra proof than that. An unnamed international engineering organization has alreadypresented to help Apple construct charging stations, Reuters says. meanwhile, Apple has publicly hired EV charging professionals from BMW, Georgia Tech and Google.

If true, the approach is a logical match for Apple. part of Tesla’s success in EVs comes from its willingness to construct a community of highvelocity charging stations — you’re much more likely to shop for amodel S in case you realize that you can pressure it long distances without spending hours expecting a recharge. Apple might also need that equal form of reassurance. And let‘s no longer neglect that Apple’sapproach revolves around controlling as a whole lot of the enjoy as feasible. It handiest makes sensethat the organization could want optimized charging stations rather than leaving drivers to apply normalstations that may not work as effectively.

UC Browser Gets UC Cricket Content Powered by Microsoft, Twitter

UC Browser Gets UC Cricket Content Powered by Microsoft, Twitter

UC Web, best known for its UC Browser app for Android phones, has tied up with micro-blogging site Twitter and tech giant Microsoft’s search engine Bing to provide a mobile gateway to live content ahead of the busy cricket season in the country.

Called UC Cricket, the new cricket content aggregation platform in UC Browser is designed to provide cricket content such as live score, news, videos, live tweets, photo, stats, previews, commentaries, and more – making it an attractive platform for cricket fans, a top executive told IANS in New Delhi.

“India has a huge appetite for digital content. In UC Browser, we provide an all-in-one browser and have incorporated different types of content on a single platform. UC Cricket is the best way to engage with Indian fans during this cricket season,” Kenny Ye, general manager of Global Markets, Alibaba Mobile Business Group, told IANS over phone.

UC Browser is a flagship product of UCWeb – a business within Alibaba Mobile Business Group and a leading provider of mobile internet software technology and services since 2004.

“Our cooperation with Twitter and Microsoft Bing is going to reshape the digital cricket content landscape, considering the modalities of our cooperation and scale of our combined user base,” Ye added.

UC Cricket comes with a series of new features, including a floating widget called UC Express which allows users to access cricket content, with customisable notification, which enables users to subscribe to an upcoming game for push notification update when the game starts.

Twitter will provide live, public, and conversational content related to cricket matches on UC Cricket such as trending tweets of cricketers, and exclusive Twitter-only content from official cricket team accounts such as native videos, Periscope streams, Vine videos, and photos.

“The partnership with UCWeb will extend the best Tweets from the most exciting moments of every match by fans, players, and commentators to a larger and new cricket-loving audience throughout the season,” added Ravichandran Bhaskaran, head of business development, India and South Asia for Twitter, in a statement.

Bing, a leading search engine of Microsoft, will provide predictions to upcoming games via Bing Predicts. Last year, 83 percent of the predictions made by Bing Predicts for the World Cup matches were accurate.

“With the integration with UC Browser, we are excited that many more users will enjoy this unique analytical feature on Bing,” commented Sundar Srinivasan, general manager of Bing Search.

According to a latest report by global market research firm Ernst & Young, in less than five years, nearly 50 percent of all content is expected to be consumed on the small screen in different formats such as video, photos, live streaming, social interaction and so on.

On a question of how the company solved the speed-related issues with respect to content provided on UC Browser, Ye said: “As compared to other countries, the network speed in India is still not very great. So, we improved the speed on the browsing, enabling users to watch online videos without wait and facilitate fast and stable downloads with the help of powerful servers.”

Twitter integration is already live on UC Cricket. Bing integration with UC Cricket will go live from March 14.
