So I am currently applying for jobs on my school's career website, and it has a limit of 200kb for resume's, cover letter, transcript etc.
I have my resume (docx) and its in 31kb of size. However I want to make that into a pdf so employers don't have to worry about file formats. When I "save as" a pdf using office, the pdf size jumps up to 381kb. 10 times the original size.
What can I do to keep it under my limit? I prefer not to install any pdf printer.
