the file extension will be .doc or .docx

If you made your resume in Microsoft Word, it will be a Word Document by default.

You can verify by right mouse clicking the file once, then scroll down to properties. It will tell you the file extension.

Hi Mike,

What program did you use to write the resume?
Notice that, in addition of the *.doc and *.docx formats, MS Word opens most of the text formats used by word processors, like *.txt, *.wri, *.wpd, *.wps, even Excel or Lotus.

Double-click on the resume file and see what program opens to display it.

Another option: RTF (rich text format) is compatible with almost all of the word processing applications that are out there. You can usually "Save As..." RTF.
