So I intend on sending out my résumé via my iphone so I emailed it to myself (its am odt file, I used open office.) After downloading the attachment the only option was to send it put as an email. I never downloaded a file on an iPhone so I expected it to save somewhere on my phone so I can send it out later.

Is it because of the file type? Do downloaded files get automatically saved or do I have to download an app for documents?

Is the only way to send out resumes via a resume app? If so which is recommended? My phone is jail broken.

Save your resume to a cloud service such as Dropbox. If your phone is jail broken buy the AnyAttach tweak which allows you to add files to emails from your online or from Dropbox. I use the tweak for exactly thus purpose (sending resumes).

I'd suggest exporting the file as a .doc file from OpenOffice as that's the most supported file I could think of for word processors, especially for a business (or .txt if you don't need rich formatting)

And the iPhone does not have a user-accessible file system nor a file manager, so moving files around and whatnot is pretty annoying. I'd suggest Documents Free (unless you want the paid version) from the App Store to deal with that kinda stuff. And Dropbox is a good alternative to emailing stuff to yourself.

This.

As long as you emailed it to yourself, you can also just forward that email to anyone that is supposed to be on the receiving end of your resume. Just edit the title, sender, and receiver. Kind of ghetto, but it will work, and nobody will know but you! ;)
