I'll see if I can find the ad on Facebook.

I'd have to agree. It's also very possible that the person writing the post and the person viewing the resumes are entirely different people and its also possible that the first message is automated and the bot didn't see an attachment.

Generally, I prefer to use the right package for the right medium. aka:

  • Send attachments in pdf form in emails.
  • Use links on personal portfolio/social profiles. Maybe even in the signature of your email if you want.

Opening a file from an unknown sender is equally bad. I like it when people just accpgt a good job exchange or LinkedIn profile.
