#4: You attach it to your email as a Word document
While you’re unlikely to be penalized for emailing a Word document, there’s a lot to be said for converting it to a PDF before sending.
A PDF document just looks neater. And even if you’ve gone crazy with the formatting, it will show up correctly on the hiring manager’s computer no matter what their settings, Word version, or font inventory. Besides, do you really want those squiggly red lines showing up under your former company’s name?
Stick to PDF. It’s the only surefire way to display your résumé exactly as you intended it.
