    ...even if the admins and programmers you will be working with hate Microsoft file formats, recruiting firms and HR departments often still expect them. There's nothing wrong with submitting in an "open" format and a "Microsoft-friendly" format at the same time, that way the recipients can deal with the version they prefer.

    Note that thanks to Open Office and Google Documents it is entirely possible to produce a good looking, Microsoft Word compatible resume without ever touching Microsoft Word.

    I support torturous regimes! Also, I kick puppies.

      I've very little experience with Open Office or Google docs, but that's sound advice.
