Looking for job PDF resumes vs html or doc resumes, what gives?

Hi,
I've been looking for jobs and most of the sites that want my resume, monster, creative group, etc, all want it in doc or html format? what gives??? I designed this great looking resume in InDesign that converts well to PDF with nice fonts and I can't even use it !!!! Now I have to resort to times and other fonts using word to make sure that my resuem at least looks somewhere close to what it should be. What happened? I thought PDF was supposed to be used by all? why does everyone want this stuff in word?
Please shed some light on this for me,
Thanks,
Stan

stan,
>In reference to post 3, is that a bad thing? Should I be wary of employers trying to 'get my guard down'???
Yes. If I were interviewing, I would try to get you to relax and feel at home -- and then see how you, as a potential employee, handle that. I want to see if the person has a tendency towards office behavior that could be inappropriate or that does not fit in with my office environment. In today's market, I'd also be scouring Facebook and other social networking sites for info on candidates I'm considering.
And for the interview, generally dress and act appropriately for going out on a sales call for the potential employer's clients -- if hired, you may be expected to do that.
As for portfolio presentation, personally, I'd rather the portfolio binder be like the frame around a picture, not an in-your-face statement. Do you want interviewers to remember the binder or its content? But other folks running with more arty clients may have a different spin on this than I. And always stick a few extra résumés in the portfolio; the designed ones are fine there.
I once had a portfolio sent to me for review that was held together with more elaborate folds and strings than an origami dog walker. I had several additional portfolios still lined up with little time to review them. All I wanted to do is rip the damn thing open. And I can't remember anything about the work inside.
And network. Most jobs are through networking with friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances and sites like LinkedIn, etc.

  • Looking for a pdf reader which meets these requirements

    I am looking for a pdf reader which meets these requirements:
    1- Open pdf starting from last page opened during last session
    2- Be able to scroll between pages vertically (not horizontally like many current ones do). Vertical scroll should be a continuous smooth scroll without doing a sudden full page pull in. Should behave as if pdf is one single very long page.
    3- Should be able to change width of page and lock it. Page should not move sideways. Page width should be remembered so when same pdf is opened, it opens in that width.
    4- A fast scroll feature. Useful for pdf's with hundreds of pages.
    5- Nice to have feature: when opening the pdf reader, it automatically opens the last pdf file on the last page read.
    I have tried all the free pdf readers in the AppStore and none met all these requirements except for two which had these issues:
    1- iRead limitation: When screen is touched for more than a second, the page is frozen (locked) and page can't be scrolled. Scrolling is done when doing quick swipes only
    2- FileApp limitation: Does not remember last page opened. Does not remember last width set. Fast scroll doesn't work properly when width is other than default.

    iAnnotate additional points
    iAnnotate works with DropBox to download and upload edited PDFs. It does all the other same things, email, USB, and iTunes etc. but it also can download PDFs from any web site.
    You can transfer hundreds if not thousands of files at one whack using the AIJ Utility on your desktop.
    If you transfer a large number of files you have to plan not to use iAnnotate a while as it has an index function that indexes all the text into a master 'dictionary' so it can do searches for data and find PDFs for you. This indexing takes hours if you transfer hundreds of moderate size PDFs at one time.
    The biggest PDF I have feed it was a Gimp manual at close to a thousand pages.
    Remember the scratch pad ram is only 256 MB in the current iPad. You can cash iAnnotate if you do something really dumb with such a large file. Other applications also grab and hold onto chunks of this ram in the iPad so it is best to force a memory reset before doing anything that is going to max out that ram.
    iAnnotate allows you to have more than one PDF open at a time and you can tab between all the open PDFs in a blink just as you would in a tabbed web browser.
    If you zoom a page larger than the width of the screen it slides around. Less than the width of the screen the page locks in the size while scrolling which is smooth between pages.
    iAnnotate is a very well made product for dealing with PDFs. Annotations display in Goodreader and in the Mac OS Preview.

  • Looking for a PDF app for iPad

    Hi,
    I'm sure I'm not the only one who's thought of this so I'm a believer that someone has created an app to help me and I can't find it!
    Pretty much, I'm looking for an app that will allow me to edit PDF's on my ipad and then send it (Via WiFi or Bluetooth) to my laptop.
    For example:
    Drawing a graph on my ipad, with detailed information, sending that to my macbook and then adding/inserting it to my PDF file on my laptop
    (Like getting a notification on my mac, loading it, draging it to my pdf, and vola!)
    If there is such a thing can someone help me out (If not feel free to take my idea and makes some money off of it, just let me know that you did!)
    Thanks

    Hey there
    "pdf creator" for iPad works flawlessly for me working with pdf files
    It takes care of all my needs
    I'm not sure about sending via Wifi or Bluetooth but I send them via e- mail all the time
    Possibly it could handle your needs as well
    Just type it into the App Store search field and the first one that comes up is the one I use
    Jump on over there and read up on it before buying and see if it will help you 
    Hope this helps
    Regards

  • Looking for a PDF editor for Mac.

    I have hundreds of PDF files that contain the combination of letters  "XX"  and I want them all to be "HH" is there an editor out there that can do this?
    I tried using Pitstop, and it cannot batch anything like this.  I would like to be able to do many files at the same time.  If I have to do them one at a time, I may as well keep doing it the way I am.
    Currently going back to the ID file making the change and re-writing PDF---working fine, just wondering if there is a better way.
    Just looking for a way to make text edits in the PDF, I have found some editors for PC but having issues with PS fonts.  Yes I could change everything to open type, and then do the change, but that may bring on new problems.
    thanks

  • Electrical Engineer with automated test experience looking for job in San Antonio Area

    I am an Electrical Engineer with 33 years of experience. Much of my experience involves computer programming with an emphasis on electrical systems, either controlling equipment or automated testing.
