If you’re not emailing your resume and need to print it out, follow these guidelines:
- Print on standard letter-sized resume paper.
- Choose good-quality paper to make sure your document stays presentable (32 lbs, 75-100% cotton is best, as it’s durable and not transparent).
- Make sure you’ve picked a suitable resume layout (a resume should be one page, unless you have over 10–15 years of relevant experience and need more space).
