Our HR people have started getting resumes arriving in .doc format, but after opening the document, this message is displayed at the top:
"Note: This is a converted Word Document. An image of the resume is displayed rather than text"
A screen shot is attached.
It's an issue because they have to take the time to OCR the document if they want it in their applicant tracking system.
I haven't found anything on this using a web search. I'm guessing it's something the senders are doing intentionally (maybe to keep formatting or prevent editing), but can't be sure. converted-doc.png
