How do I make a PDF file for my resume?

PDF is a type of file that let's people with different types of computers see a document exactly as you created it. It is a better choice than Word DOC files or text files for the web.

There are different ways to create a PDF of your resume, depending on what type of computer you have. If you have an Apple/Mac computer, just choose "Print" from the "File" Menu in your word processing program and then click "Preview". Once your resume is open in Preview, choose "Save as PDF" from the "File" menu.

If you have a Windows PC and need to convert your resume from a Word document to a PDF, we suggest OpenOffice - a free alternative to Microsoft Office. It can read and write both Word documents and PDF files. You can also pay Adobe to create PDF files, if you're into that sort of thing.
