How can I convert my resume from a *.doc file into a PDF (without a paid Adobe account)?
I don't need to PRINT a document, I need to e-mail a PDF to an employer because they want their resumes in PDF format. The job is all the way at the other end of the country, and snail-mailing a resume isn't an option, especially since they expect it within the next 4 days
I'm not using word, as I'm disabled and can't afford it, I'm using OpenOffice
The job I'm applying for is an office job so my disability is a non-factor

Which version of Word do you have? Word 2007 has a free PDF addin you can install from Microsoft that will create a PDF and if it's the 2010 version it comes already built in.

I use PDF Creator, which is a free and reliable PDF "printer." The system generates graphic data, hands it to the PDF Creator software, and then it asks you where you want to save the PDF which is generated in real-time.
If you decide to go that route, you can download it and read more at http://www.pdfforge.org/
While none of the optional software they'd like you to install with it should cause any major headaches, I suggest not installing (or uninstalling afterwards) all of it.

I use another brand similar to PDF Creator - Nitro PDF. I love being able to print things to a PDF file.
