What is the best file format to use when uploading documents to my ePortfolio?

You may upload files to your ePortfolio as long as they're saved in one of the following supported formats:

  • Portable Document Format (.pdf)
  • Word Documents (.doc; .docx; and .rtf)
  • Plain Text (.txt)

We suggest that users upload their résumés as a .pdf to ensure it will be viewed properly with all original formatting by potential employers.
