Microsoft and LinkedIn have created a new Resume Assistant. It is a tool to help users optimize their resumes for specific jobs, and is now available for Office 365 subscribers on Windows! Resume Assistant simply 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.
To access the feature, just open Word, click on Review, then click Resume Assistant. Create a draft of your resume and then come meet with one of the PCAs during drop-in hours and they can give you feedback to make sure it is ready for applications! Drop in hours are Monday-Friday 12:30-4:00 pm in the Adirondack House.
Call for applications closes February 1, 2018

Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have created the first mathematical model that can predict how a cancer patient will benefit from certain immunotherapies, according to a study published in Nature.
Scientists have long sought a way to discover whether patients will respond to new checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapies and to better understand the characteristics that indicate a tumor can be successfully treated with them. The proposed mathematical model, which captures aspects of the tumor’s evolution and the underlying interactions of the tumor with the immune system, is more accurate than previous genomic biomarkers in predicting how the tumor will respond to immunotherapy.

If you haven’t heard, universities around the world offering their courses online for free (or at-least partially free). These courses are collectively called as MOOCS or Massive Open Online Courses.
In the past six years or so, close to 800 universities have created more than 8,000 of these MOOCs. And I’ve been keeping track of these MOOCs the entire time over at Class Central, ever since they rose to prominence.
