What does "Word format" mean?
I sent a resume online to an employer and they sent me a email back saying I needed to send a resume in word format to move further.
Jeff, I think what they're referring to here is Microsoft Word format (*.doc). That's part of the Microsoft Office software. If you don't have that on your computer or have access to it, you can download Open Office for free off the Web (Google it). Create your resume in Open Office's Writer program, which is very close to MS Word. Then, instead of saving it in Open Office format, choose the option to save it in Word 97/2000/XP format. That should do it.
