I sent .pdf docs during one of my job searches. Unfortunately, most of the
headhunters didn't know what a .pdf file was! They had no idea of what to do
with it.

I learned that it's better to stick with MS-Word. I'm not a fan of plain
text but I did have a .txt version of my resume in case anyone requested it.

What is the prefered format for submitting documents when applying for jobs
on-line? I've been sending resumes and cover letters as pdf. documents
thinking they are universally accessible, and more resistant to srambling in
transit. I've been getting some messages back that the files can't be
opened. Should I be sticking to plain text or some other format instead?
