"[q]People still send resumes as .doc? I thought most saved them as PDF these days.

Sadly .doc still has to be used. A good majority of employers, even in the IT industry, demand the resume in .doc format. If sent in as a pdf, it will be ignored since they specifically require .doc.

Incompetence on the part of IT industry then? Sigh!

Is America already really this much in decline? [/q]

As is the UK, where .doc format is required as well for CVs and resumes as a majority rule.
