There are two kinds of recruiters and they ask for your resume in Microsft Word for two separate reasons:
Presenting your work experience section in columns, or creating fancy text boxes and graphics and non-standard fonts.
Taleo and other ATS systems may mangle it so it may actually look hideous.
When you save the file, do File…Save As… Then from File Format dropdown, select Word 97-2004 Document (.doc)
This makes your resume “backward compatible” so if a recruiter is using an older version of Word, it still works.
If your resume is not in Microsoft Word right now, take a few minutes to create a simply formatted Word doc.
