How to Convert Pages to Word

Microsoft Word is one of the most popular programs in the corporate world, since its release in 1983. It is an inevitable part of every computer that runs on Windows operating system. Because Windows is the most widespread among operating systems, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Word can be found on almost every computer.

Since it is an essential program for word processing in general, Microsoft Word is used for all kinds of business and personal tasks. That wide usage of MS Word may cause troubles to Mac users. Like Windows users, Mac users have a word processing program that is called Pages. It is like Word but it works only on Mac operating system.

Due to MS Word dominance over Pages, most business tasks that involve any kind of document sharing, management, require documents in Word format (.doc or .docx). For that matter, Mac users need to convert Pages to Word and get a file in a more universal and readable format.

How to Make a Resume that Will Look Good on a Phone

If you are a job seeker you probably know how to make a resume. But do you know that your resume has to be mobile ready? There are two good reasons why you need to format your resume so as to be mobile friendly.

 

Reason one: You are away from your computer and you’ve just found a job ad of your interest. Maybe you were using Facebook on your mobile and spotted an ad. You want to apply for that job but your computer is far away. In that case, you can use a mobile device to send a resume, but you need to check if resume formatting fits mobile.

 

Reason two: No matter what device you use to send a resume, a computer or a mobile phone, chances are that recruiters might check job applications on the go. Too be sure that you stand a chance for a dream job, you need to check your resume prior to sending and see if it looks nice on your phone or tablet.

Keep Resume Style Simple

 

If you use less known fonts and advanced MS Word options when you make a resume, it will make your resume stand out from others. However, using complex fonts and sidebars,won’t necessarily look good on a smaller screen. As a matter of fact, your resume can look very bad on a mobile phone. That’s why is safer to keep using well-known fonts and stick to general formatting settings.

 

              Present Your Best Content at the Top of the Resume

 

Take a look at the resume on your mobile phone or tablet and consider reordering the resume content. Put the most important content at the top of the resume because that is the first thing that a recruiter will see. He may even not scroll down till the end of your resume, so it’s better you present your most outstanding skills and qualifications at the top.

 

Save Your Resume in PDF

 

Given that MS Word document can lose its consistency and formatting when seen on other devices, you should better save a resume as PDF. PDF format is considered as the best solution for keeping data the same. It doesn’t matter if you have the same operating system or the same type of a device (a computer, a mobile phone), PDF file will look the same, which is not the case with Word files.

 

What Else Can You Do to Make Your Resume Mobile Friendly?

 

Well, you can keep it short and try to present information in the shortest possible way. Since we use mobile devices with the tap of a finger, and not with a mouse, it is hard to manipulate with hyperlinks. So make sure you set up the links so they can be opened with a single tap.

 

With well-formatted resume you have greater chances to catch recruiters’ eyes attention and eventually find a job.

Is There Anything to Replace Email

The History of Email

 

The @ sign has always been the email sign, since Tomlinson invented it. It was only for a short period of time when the sign @ was intended to be replaced with the signs ! and %, but with no success. The first email was sent in 1971 by Tomlinson. At that time, email had to be printed so as to be read. Although email was basically invented in the 70-s, it took ages and even decades to become popular and used widespread. The wider usage of emails occurred when World Wide Web came to the scene. In the mid- 90s having an internet connection and being online was a trend, and everyone has started using emails.

Email was seen as a communication tool that didn’t know about different social classes and everyone could send or receive an email, regardless of age, rank and social reputation. That accessibility was the reason why inbox got so full. One day, people just lost control over their inboxes. Emails had the same destiny as snail mails- suddenly, a lot of promotional materials and flyers made the majority of emails content. Only then and now you can see a meaningful email and it often gets lost in the sea of email marketing materials.

Email Gets Less Popular

 

A few decades ago, if someone sent you an email you would not receive it until you log into your computer and get internet access. At the same time, text messaging via phone has become a faster way of communication. Your message gets delivered instantly.

Facebook came and then Instagram, Snapchat…With all these new applications that have arised, emails didn’t have a chance. Now people text each other via Viber, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger. In the same way people stopped sending snail mails, they just stopped using emails. Of course, there are still occasions when email has a purpose, usually in a business world where using Viber or Facebook doesn’t seem professional. Job seekers also use emails, but Linkedin took some of its users, because now you can apply for a job directly.

 

What Impact Has the Rise of Mobile Had on Emails?

With the rise of the mobile industry, email became accessible to its users. Now you can receive or send an email instantly. But with all these other apps arising on the market, emails are not irreplaceable any more. Still, they are here.

There are some occasions when using emails is actually the most convenient. And don’t forget that almost every application or a service that requires registration, comes with the email address box that has to be filled in. So, at least, you can use emails to register on different sites and services, to receive educational or informational newsletters. One day, you may have time to read them all.

 

So, Is There Anything to Replace Email?

 

Many people are asking this question, especially on Quora.  Well, it is safe to say that email will stay here with us for a while. It may not be used to that extent though, because there are a lot of apps that can replace some of its purposes. Yes, there are tons of apps you can use for team and project collaboration, to send business documents; there are apps you can use to store your files, documents, send images, organize your tasks and calendars. But at the same time, there are many websites that require email for registration and many of them also require email verification. There are occasions when you don’t want to give someone your Facebook profile or a phone number, because you don’t know the person quite well, and giving an email address keeps you distant enough but still makes the communication doable.

 

Even though people use Viber and Whatsapp to call people, they still make phone calls and send regular text messages. Even though snail mails are not popular any more, they are not completely dead. The same goes with emails. There will always be people and businesses that will use emails to communicate with their customers, business partners or to read newsletters and send personal emails.
