Converting TeX to MS-Word for recruiters asking for resumes in word files

Since some resume websites only accept .doc (word files).

Now, I'm not a pro user, just have that in mind when you read this next part:

My current resume is a .tex file that is compiled using pdflatex, it also uses a resume.cls

I just want to get a .doc file that is as close to the pdf as possible.

  • I know that there is such feature in adobe acrobat reader. But you have to register & pay for it. Furthermore I don't know anything about the results. – Dave Jan 14 '13 at 20:49

    Sounds like tex.stackexchange.com/questions/38837/… to me: could you take a look and let us know if this helps? – Joseph Wright Jan 14 '13 at 20:49
  • I know there is a possibility to create a HTML file out of .tex files. Maybe its easier to convert HTML to .doc – Rico Jan 14 '13 at 20:55

    You can get a .doc that is looks like the PDF: Just capture each page as an image and paste that image into the .doc file. That is what I would do if someone required a .doc file. :-) – Peter Grill Jan 14 '13 at 21:46

    @ Dave: I'll check it out and report back. @ Joseph Wright: I'll check it out and report back. @ Timebandit: I'll try that and report back. @ Peter Grill: Many of these websites need your resume to be text, as they need to parse your resume for keywords. – piratepartypumpkin Jan 14 '13 at 22:13
