Most executives say they still prefer to receive resumes in a PDF or Word document from candidates applying for creative (i.e., non-technical) marketing roles at their company, according to recent research from The Creative Group.
The report was based on data from a survey of more than 400 marketing and advertising executives based in the United States.
Some 78% of respondents say they prefer to receive resumes in a traditional format, up from 70% who said the same in 2013.
Only 14% of the executives surveyed prefer to receive resumes as online/social profiles.
