Problem with CV and TeX
Well, I like TeX. I really like TeX. Especially LaTeX, howevert ConTeXt. I use this to write some documents, in the last week I rewrote my CV to look a little bit nicer. I used Kile and LaTeX and converted that to a pdf. And I’ve got a nice CV, and some letters to some companies written in LaTeX. I’ve got them in some strange(?) formats like dvi or pdf. I thought that there woudln’t be any problem with this.
There are some advertisments where it is written
Please send us your CV in the Word format.
Please send us your CV in the *.doc file.
Well, I don’t have one. I usually send using pdfs.
I sent an email with pdf files. I’ve got reply that the files are not in the Word format. Could I send in this format? I answered “no, I can’t”. Usually there is a reply: “OK, no problem”.
But sometimes it is:
Sorry, you can’t apply to this job if we don’t have your cv in this format.
Well, what a pity.
There is no sensible (I don’t know of any) converter from LaTeX/PDF to Word.
Well, I’ve got a nice CV, in the pdf properties there is information that it was written using LaTeX, coool. I’ve got a coooool geeky CV, sometimes unusable but it is coool.
