    Hi all, i have a resume i need to mail off to a few prospective employers. What's the best way to attach this thing so it doesn't look stupid? Dummy me, I already mailed it out twice just attaching it, but it opens up microsoft word when you open the attachment and kinda looks unfinished ya know? So what do I do different?

    Get someone with Adobe Acrobat writer to make it into a PDF. Then when they open it with the reader, it will look nice and pro.

    Or, try saving it or formatting it as a web page. You may lose some fancy fonts, but work out the formatting on as a web page (a lot will probably change), then just send that. They'll most likely open it in a browser and view it just like you sent it.

    Most importantly, test everything first! Send it to friends with different versions of Word, etc.

    Good luck!
