  • About Adobe PDF (Portable Document Format)
  • Special Features in Reading The Jobs Letter On-Screen

  • PDF (portable document format) files have quickly become the de-facto standard in document exchange on the internet. They are used by government departments and NGOs (non-government organisations) worldwide.

    The advantage of the format is that it can be read and printed on all types of computers while still retaining the look and lay-out of a normal printed page.

    For The Jobs Letter, this format will be easier for you to read on screen and print off and pass around your colleagues.
