Yes; but some companies won't accept pdfs; they want a doc format that they can edit and/or extract pieces from.

And increasingly, the concept of a traditional resume is becoming obsolete; when you submit applications to jobs on-line, often its more like filling out a form; there are have distinct fields that you have to populate with content.

Layout is usually lost, fonts are changed to the employer's default, and graphics are often stripped. Some employers have a specific format or template for the resume to follow that often resembles a boring application form.


Is PDF no longer a valid format in which to present resumes? Wouldnât that solve the reformatting issue?
