Things have changed for school. Unfortunately they have also changed on the outside. When applying for a job, 95% of all companies/agencies want your resume emailed to them in MS Word Format. Sending them a PDF file is as good as never getting called for an interview. Ridiculous yes, however it is reality, at least here in the US. So in reality these day, sadly, format is more important than content to business.

Funny thing is, a friend of mine has a small company that specializes in writing FOSS software on-demand (Yes, it's possible to earn a living that way if you are good at it). He once told me that resumes sent to them in ".doc" format go directly to the trash. Ahh, sweet revenge ;)
