How to convert and save a CV as a PDF
Most people tend to use Microsoft Word to write and format their CVs and this is still the best program to use because it offers the most flexibility and is designed for creating documents. However, some recruitment websites and job applications insist on .PDF versions due to file size. But what if you don’t know how to convert a Word document to PDF?
In recent months, we have received lots of questions asking this so it seems to be a common problem.

* How do I save my CV as a PDF?
* How do I change my Word CV to a PDF?
* What is the best format for my CV, Word or PDF? How can I change it?
