Should I save my resume in different file formats?

Resume File Formats

You should avoid sending your resume as an email attachment; however, for those instances when you're requested to send an attachment, you should save your resume in a Word and an Adobe PDF format.

The Word format is fairly universal and the software required to read an Adobe PDF is free. You should also save your resume in a .txt format to make it easy to cut and paste your resume in online applications.
