Best format for Résumé? [email]

.pdf, .txt, .rtf, .doc, .docx, .jpg? Any suggestions?

Also, do you attach your Cover Letter or type it in the body of the email message?

My resume is always attached as a .doc - everyone at least has Windows 2000 capability. My cover letter is always the body of the email, unless they specifically ask for a cover letter to be sent as an attachment.

See this thread for more information.

Hey thanks for replying to my post. You have some great advice! Especially about hand delivering the resume, if that's an option with employers.

If you have Office 2007 or newer, you might want to save as an Office 97-03 document, that way it doesn't have to convert itself or anything like that.
