Why is it not possible to have a word version of my CV/resume?

Towards the end of the resume redo process, I am normally asked for a word version of the final product.

Whilst this does seem on the surface a reasonable request. Its simply just not possible.

I do my best to point this fact out both explicitly on the sales page as well as in the form that you fill in to initiate the redo process.

Yet. Sadly. A lot of my clients seem to skip over this in the understandable desire/excitement to take their CV to the next level.

So, just to let you know that I would love to let you have a word version of your resume and I do understand that you would like to be able to make your own changes to the document going forward.

The resume builder I use to create your resume does not produce a word version.
Most applications of this nature do not produce a word version.

For the ones that do you will find that the word version produced has boxes that inevitable break the formatting of your document with anything more than a few additional lines of text added.

Word is really not designed for producing a well-formatted resume that can be updated over time.

The good news is that if you know how to use a PDF editor program you can generally make minor amendments to your resume yourself.

And. If down the track you want to make a few adjustments to your resume I hold on to it for 12 months and charge a small fee for making updates.
