comment Creating PDF (resume) suitable for automated text extraction
Well the question was more general about good practise methods for creating resumes... there are indeed often problems with ligatures, accents and hyphenation which come up the sites where I have the option to manually edit the extracted text before submission - but I worry about automated screening where I cannot correct the output.

@JosephWright: I understand that, but there is a lot of discussion of LaTeX for resumes and this is a really important consideration for the current job market which I have not seen discussed elsewhere.

comment Creating PDF (resume) suitable for automated text extraction
Thanks. At least bright.com doesn't pick up the columns correctly - but even with columns disabled a lot of times the spaces are missing. I have no idea what software companies might use for automatic keyword screening. I guess it may be safer to stick to html if they accept that format (the output from pdf2htmlex looks really good).
