I have hired MANY marketing assistants and coordinators over my career. I’m always shocked when someone submits a Word resume to me. The first thing I do is reveal hidden formatting and see exactly how they formatted that resume. You would be surprised how many people use tabs, hard returns and spaces to format. I rarely see anyone properly using styles in their resume. To me, these are not proficient Word users. I won’t interview these people. These positions require a high level of computer knowledge, and if you can’t properly format a resume, you can’t do this job. At least with a PDF they can hide those flaws for a while.
Why should I create a Rev'd up resume using Facebook and how do I share it with companies I am applying to for jobs?
This will help you differentiate yourself from the other job seekers and will show hiring managers that you are well liked, recommended, and a team player. In order to share it with hiring managers you can include the URL link on your Word resume and in cover letters.

Why are ResuWe templates best? I also hear they are boring...
ResuWe is founded by experienced recruiters who have consulted extensively with other recruiters and employers about preferred resume standards. Most companies use Applicant Tracking Systems which parse out and display resumes in an HTML format. Many Word resumes, though they look great in Word, do not display well in HTML based Applicant Tracking Systems. ResuWe will allow you to download your resume as a Word document which also parses and displays well in Applicant Tracking Systems. Sounds complicated, but trust us, this is important!!! We know.
