Amen. I should spend the time defining styles for a two-page one-off document in a program I hardly ever use at home? The only reason I have a copy of Word at all is because most people seem to want resumes in that format (I've only seen a couple of requests for text, btw, and none at all for pdf in the three months I've now been looking).

I can certainly see the need for rigorous use of styles in documentation (being a Frame fan, I could hardly think otherwise :-), but this seems like a rather arbitrary test to impose, particularly if none of your candidates know it's a job criterion.

To me the above advice is only pertinent if the job you're applying for
requires you to use Word, and expects a level of Word expertise. As we've
seen on this list, many writers avoid Word when possible (and jobs that
require it), and might just be whipping together a Word resume to meet
submission requirements.
