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.

Just 3% say they prefer video resumes, and another 3% cite infographic resumes.
