Why should I send my application in the PDF Format?
PDF documents are ideal for sharing content on the internet. The PDF format ensures that your application at the receiving end looks just like it does on your computer. The size of a PDF is often lower than in other document formats. A PDF file can be viewed on any computer because display programs are free. PDF documents are somewhat unavoidable because many companies accept applications exclusively as PDF.
How do I set up my application as a PDF
Download the free PDF Creator here on this site. With this program you can create PDF files from (almost) any program. The creation of PDF is implemented via a virtual printer. The printer is named "PDF24". Simply print your application on this printer and a PDF of your application is created.
Attachments for job applications such as a resume are also handled by this program very well. The program can merge several PDF files. In this way you can create a PDF from the cover letter, the resume and all other attachments. Then you can load the files into the PDF editing interface.
