Dear Experts, What format do you recommend for e-mailing resumes? I've been using publisher, but I'm starting to reconsider. Here is how the T.A.P. experts answered this question: @keppie_careers Q#142 To email resumes, MS Word typically preferred. May consider creating PDF and adding as option. @ValueIntowords Q#142 Universal (preferred) formats include MS Word (attachment) + Plain Text/ASCII (2 cut/paste into email body). @kgrantcareers Q#142 Best format for e-mailing resume - I agree w other experts - Word or PDF file is best. @sweetcareers Q#142 Ask empl's pref, bt generally PDF is preferable. If using Wrd 07, check if empl cn open, if not, save as '03. @beneubanks Q#142 Word is most popular (.doc, not .docx), but I'd use PDF to ensure integrity/formatting on the resume. @DebraWheatman Q#142 If uploading to a site convert the resume to text so that information is not lost and strange characters do not appear. @iplawman Q#142 If not specified, use PDF format. Send single file with cover letter on first page and resume following. @dawnbugni Q#142 Word or PDF (or both) accepted format. Publisher, not good. Not everyone has. Follow submission directions. @resumesrevealed Q#142 Use PDF always, unless 4 Word or plain txt; if using Word, don't use header 4 contact info - ATS w/not pick it up. @jtodonnell Q#142 I say PDF EVERYTHING so it doesn't get altered in transfer. Free tool like Primo can convert file for you. @heatherhuhman: Q#142 I personally recommend PDF, unless the ad states no attachments. Preserves your fonts and formatting.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I am reminded how grateful I am, not only for the people around me but that I have the opportunity to run my own business. One of the benefits of running a small business is that it gives me the ability to donate to causes that matter to me, and find ways to help build community, and show others the benefits of charitable giving.
