PDF resumes or pdf documents represent the opposite philosophy of the ASCII format. They are hard to process by a computer, but will keep the formatting unchanged no matter what computer the reader uses. Your PDF resume will look the same on a Windows PC, Linux PC or a Mac.
A PDF resume is the best option when your resume will be read by a person and not a computer. Use it if you need to send your resume by email and you are sure it won’t be scanned.
It’s also a good option if you want to upload it to your blog or website and want to keep the formatting unchanged.
