Microsoft and LinkedIn's Resume Assistant, a tool to help users optimize their resumes for specific jobs, is now available for Office 365 subscribers on Windows. Resume Assistant pops up in a sidebar and helps by offering examples of work experience descriptions you can use as inspiration for your resume based on a role (like a project manager) or an industry (like journalism). You can also filter through skills prospective employers might be looking for to fine-tune and tailor your CV. Resume Assistant has been integrated with Microsoft Word since last year.
Microsoft, which bought LinkedIn for $26.2 billion in 2016, says the feature gathers insights from millions of LinkedIn profiles for examples of how others in similar roles or roles you're aspiring to describe their work experience. LinkedIn's freelance hiring marketplace ProFinder is also connected directly to Resume Assistant, so you can talk to experts about career coaching and other resume tips. The tool will also find and display relevant job opportunities, and you can flag that you're looking for work to recruiters via the Open Candidates function.
To access the feature, just open Word, click on Review, then click Resume Assistant.
Resume Assistant is available when you set your display language to English and your region is set to Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, or the US. Microsoft says the feature will roll out to other operating systems, regions, and languages in the coming months.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
