I recently found an ad on facebook that needed freelance developers on their team. The ad said to send a resume in a pdf file or a link to a resume.

I sent this: https://my-name-with-the-resume-word.s3.amazonaws.com/august.pdf but the Hiring Manager still asked for a pdf file or a link to my resume.

My reply was “The link I sent is a link to a pdf file. What’s wrong with you?” I hope I didn’t sound rude tho.

What do you think? Should hiring managers know how to read a url?


This is the first 2 emails we’ve exchanged. You be the judge.
