Well, I like TeX. I really like TeX. Especially LaTeX, however ConTeXt looks much nicer. I use this to write some documents, last week I rewrote my resume to look a little bit nicer. I used Kile and LaTeX and converted it to a pdf. So now I’ve got a nice resume 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 wouldn’t be any problems with this.
There are some advertisements where it is written
Please send us your resume in the Word format.
Please send us your resume in the *.doc file.
Well, I don’t have one. I usually send 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, you 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 resume 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 resume, in the pdf properties there is information that it was written using LaTeX, coool. I’ve got a coooool geeky resume, sometimes unusable but it is coool.
