It’s been a while since Microsoft acquired LinkedIn. We have been anticipating some sort of integration between MS Office and LinkedIn, but nothing major has happened. (The “Resume Assistant” in Microsoft Word is a joke! All it does is make the users to add details to their profiles) However, we can now look up contacts (email addresses) in Outlook Online. Here is how.
- Connect Outlook Online with LinkedIn: log into your Office account online if you have a subscription – if not, create a new account at https://outlook.live.com (it’s free). Your email must be registered on LinkedIn.
- Upload the list of email addresses, that you would like to cross-reference, into your contacts.
- In https://outlook.live.com/people, select a contact and the “LinkedIn” tab to see the profile!
