Retiring Resume Assistant in Word

Microsoft 365 Apps, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC411669 · Published Aug 10, 2022

Message Summary

Resume Assistant is being phased out, starting in September 2022. By the end of January 2023, it will be removed and no longer supported.

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.

Timeline of removal from Word: 

  • September 2022 – Removed from the Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel (Preview)
  • January 2023 – Removed across Windows (Current Channel, Monthly Enterprise Channel, Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel), macOS, and Word for the web

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.

How this will affect your organization:

Note: You may have already disabled this feature with the group policy Allow LinkedIn Resume Assistant feature – if you have already disabled this feature for your users then you won’t be impacted and can ignore this notice.

From mid-August, users will see a message when they launch Resume Assistant in Word, informing them that the feature will be going away.

If you’re concerned about the in-product message, you can use the Allow LinkedIn Resume Assistant feature policy to disable the feature and the in-product message.
