Alert to Microsoft Vista and Office 2007 Users - Saving Word Documents
A word to the wise. As a recruiter, I receive hundreds of resumes as e-mail attachments. I prefer to receive them in MS-Word format. The problem is that when users of the Microsoft Vista operating system or Microsoft Office Word 2007 save a Word document, it is saved by default as a .docx file, which cannot be opened or read by Windows XP. So, unless you know that the person you are sending a Word file to has Vista or Microsoft Office 2007, please save your document as a .doc file rather than a .docx.
