TIL. Some job websites reject pdf's for having 'active elements'. After some searching, it was suggested to print to pdf instead. This however increased the size of the pdf by about 200 times. After some more searching I ran into the following snippet
`gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOUTPUTFILE=clean.pdf -dBATCH dirty.pdf`
Which seems to nicely 'clean' up the pdf, without increasing the filesize by 200 times..
