If you have a Resume prepared with Microsoft Office and you want (or need) to share with others but do not want them to change the format, you may want to save it as a PDF. PDF files also preserve formatting when printing, so you can feel comfortable that your Resume looks exactly the way you want it to look.

Adobe Acrobat can cost around $300, and if you only need it for 1 or 2 documents, that can be kind of spendy. With this little secret, you can quickly and easily save your Microsoft Word Resume as a PDF document is just a few steps.

  2. Next, Click the "File" tab or the "File" pull-down menu and select "Save As"

  4. Select the "Save as Type" pull down, and choose the "PDF (*.pdf)" option
  5. In the File Name box, enter a name for your Resume, if you haven't already
  6. Click "Save" and you're done
