Resume Presentation

Quality Paper

Now that you have invested time in writing the perfect resume, what remains is to produce a high quality final product. Quality paper is a final touch that will leave a favorable impression with a prospective employer. It is appealing to the eye and prints better, maintaining a clear, sharp image. As for color, white is still considered the first choice. Off-white, cream, or gray is acceptable; avoid using colored paper. Paper size should be the standard letter size, 8-1/2" x 11". Here are other guidelines:

Paper Weight


Paper Texture

Job Service Offices
Workforce Centers
Libraries Print Shops
Social Organizations
Community Agencies Religious Organizations
Friends and Family
Private Placement Agencies
