My CV is written in LaTeX using moderncv, and I have a script that converts it to PDF whenever I need to send an updated copy.

However, some employers require Microsoft Word (or RTF) CV. I have converted the PDF into images, and manually pasted them into a DOC file.

Is there a way to convert a series of pictures into a .doc file, each in a separate page?

There is a better solution: convert your latex document to rtf using pandoc.

A correct conversion is not sure, because it only understand a subset of latex.

It is available in the official Ubuntu repos.
