Converting my pdf resume from latex into a doc file so that maybe I'll hear back on some of my internship applications. Apparently resume filters are not good with pdfs still?

@ksteimel I have a résumé and use to convert to just about any format. Makes things so much easier.

I'm working towards having a markdown résumé. What's stopped me so far is that résumés are so graphical documents that I can't resist the urge to manually tinker with margins, different fonts etc. But I think in terms of easily keeping it updated, markdown and a sensible template is the way to go.

@mmin @ksteimel I could send you my HTML and LaTeX templates if you're interested. Can be seen here:
