How do I turn my resume into a Word document?

How do I turn my resume into a Word document?

Keep in mind that your resumes are easily updated, either by updating the information in MyData Portfolio or updating what's displayed on each individual resume. After a resume is created, there are a variety of resume templates available to update the format and look of your resume. Then select Download PDF and you have a ready-to-submit resume in PDF form!

If you need to turn your resume into a Word document for any reason, you can use any converter (there are free ones available online) to turn the PDF into a Word document. But remember that any edits you make to a Word document won't update MyData Portfolio or other versions of your resume! So it's always better to make edits in MyData Portfolio and use your account to make customized versions of your resume to apply for jobs rather than edit the resume in Word.
