FutureStarrHow to Print Out a Resume ORR
The idea of printing out a resume might seem a bit odd, but it could take you to the next interview. If you need to update your resume, or you know someone who does, here's a rough tutorial for finding and printing a resume that you should be happy with for your next gig. However, before you print, make sure you have sufficient ink and paper.
Online resume creation websites enable you to create and print your resume from any computer or tablet with Internet access. The websites are free and contain multiple resume templates including step-by-step wizards that walk your through entering your personal and professional information as well as information about your small business management skills. Online resume creation websites also enable you to save a copy of your resume onto your computer for editing and printing later, if desired.
Typical copy paper is 20 pounds per ream, or per 500 pages of paper. Instead of using the standard weight, opt for 24 or 32-pound paper. 24-pound paper is more formal than 20-pound paper. It's also cost-effective and budget-friendly, and can usually go through a home printer easily. 32-pound resume paper is heavier and opaque, and it's less likely to tear. It's usually more expensive than 24-pound paper, and many home printers may have trouble running this paper through. If you use 32-pound paper for your resume, consider printing it at an office supply store that has a commercial printer. (Source: www.indeed.com)
You can also choose a light, subtle shade such as pale yellow, blue, brown or green. Ivory and white are more accepted for professional positions, and subtle shades may be suited to a more creative position, such as for a graphic designer. An even more subtle shade like gray can still look professional while helping your resume to stand out from the competition.
Staples: Staples has a copy center with an associate to help with your printing needs. Staples is organized a bit differently than FedEx Office, and generally seems to to not run as large of a production operation at the full-service counter. This makes small jobs a bit easier to sneak into the queue. The best part about this is that you don't need to figure anything out on your own, but like any full-service operation, you're going to want to flag down an associate for help. We were quoted $0.41 - $3.00 per resume print when we called into our local Staples location. So, a bit more expensive than FedEx Office depending on what exactly you purchase. You can find a nearby Staples location through this tool. Make the most of your premium resume paper with a beautiful and modern resume design, such as the one offered through Creative Market below which can be populated easily in Microsoft Word in a few minutes.
