Quoting Greg Folkert (email@example.com):

As posed, your question dictates an answer of "Use MS-Word" (or get
someone else to use the thing for you).

Seeking relevant information from corporate drones often ends that way.
I have a theory, though, that the recruiters use parsing software that
ingests MS-Word-format (only) resumes, matches keywords, and creates a
database record in some vertical app.
The people you ask "Why do you require MS-Word?" have no knowledge of
this. They just push buttons and make telephone calls.
