Unless I miss something, converting a Word doc to a searchable PDF ins't that difficult. I always use a free PDF converter to convert a Word doc to a searchable PDF. Moreover, you can use OopenOffice Writer to create your resume with all the bells and whistles like MS Word (if you wish but not recommended per the author) and use the built-in PDF conversion feature. Copy and paste with PDF? What problem?
