Help me eliminate gridlines on a Word table

How do I more-or-less permanently hide gridlines on a table in a Word document, so that the person who opens that document (after I submit it electronically) won't see those gridlines?

My resume is composed in table in a Word document (I'm using Word 2004 for Mac). I click off the gridlines (and use no borders) when I'm looking at it, and then save it that way. Whenever I open it, though, I see gray gridlines throughout and those don't look so "clean." I don't want the recipient to see that sloppiness, and I can't just convert it to pdf (my preferred solution) because the jobs site where I must submit this resume allows only Word.
Is there something I can do to make sure the gridlines stay "turned off," both for me when I reopen it, and for the recipient when she gets it?
