New Resume Assistant From LinkedIn and Microsoft

Thanks to Kailash Pandey ’19 for sharing this with us!

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.

Alumni Posting: Full Time and Junior Internships Open at Cogo Labs

Another posting from Mark Sinks ’17thank you Mark!!!

Mark, a Computer Science and Biology double major, has been working for Cogo labs in Boston for the last 6 months and shares that they are hiring for multiple positions.

Cogo Labs is a unique incubator, creating new businesses from their own internal experiments, and then growing them to profitability through the efforts of their top-notch engineering, analytics, and design teams. As part of the Link Ventures corporate family, they strongly believe that the key to creating long-term value is to maximize revenue growth with limited venture investment. Once a new company becomes profitable, they give them the support they need to grow very big, very quickly.

Interested in becoming a “Cogonaut”? See what is open on their website.

The Cogo Internship Program is designed to give entrepreneurial designers, engineers and analysts an opportunity to work in the startup environment.

About the Internships:

  • Collaboration is the key to success in any new business venture. You’ll work on a multidisciplinary team–learning, breaking stuff, and growing a new company from scratch.
  • Projects vary from year to year, but the basic concept stays the same: a friendly competition between intern teams to build a new product for Cogo. We’ll give you a basic outline, a laptop and some Github credentials, and the rest is up to you.
  • Each team works with design, engineering and analyst mentors to learn the ropes and strategize on how to approach the project. Most teams meet with their mentors daily.

Benefits + Perks

  • This is a full-time, salaried position.
  • We’ll cover your MBTA pass, so you can get to work and explore Boston after hours.
  • Located in Kendall Square in Cambridge – T accessible and near lots of great bars and restaurants.
  • You get to attend our super awesome summer Cogo events.
