I would agree with everything said. If you can get the resume DIRECTLY to the person I think .pdf is better.

Fact is though simple text formats still rule due to the fact that HR puts them in a database to be scanned for key items that the employer is looking for. PDF's are difficult to put into a Database. If your blindly applying or using services like Monster the simplier the better...

No harm in asking a few recruiters what would be best in your situation.

Key is to have multiple for different situations and or perspective employers.. etc.

As much as I hate anything MS, I have found that the vast majority of prospective employers expect Word, and most actually require it. My personal preference is Adobe: PDF is universal, but wouldn't it be great if they'd accept *.PSD?, but I'm one of those geeks =-)
