Resume Paper

Postby The Balanced Man » Mon Jan 16, 2006 10:53 am

Resume Paper...

Linen, Laid, Textured, Plain, Emossed, blah blah blah

Do employers even really care what paper your resume is on?

Does it matter whether you are going for a job that takes a doctorate degree as compared to a Bach.?

Thoughts?

I don't find paper quality as important as the paper content. Especially if you post online. the copy you bring to interview should look good as far as setup and content but I seriously doubt that employers will make or break your hiring on the quality of paper. I know that's never a factor for me when I look at resumes.

I would use a high quality paper, that way if it matters to someone you wont be losing out, if it doesnt, great, just a few extra bucks gone down the drain.

Redskin said it best, its the content that matters the most. Buy a book on Resume preparation.

Good luck ;-D

I doubt employers really care, but it can't hurt.

I just buy resume paper at Office Depot.

Just use any ol' piece of paper, but let it sit next to the grill while grilling BBQ ribs. If the the person reading your resume is a guy, the scent of hickory-smoked goodness will send him into an euphoria at what point you just earned yourself a job.

My fee is 10%.

you should invest in some resume paper from office depot. it's not going to cost you a whole lot, and if you buy a protective sleeve for your resume while you are there, you never have to print it more than a couple times. but i think the presentation is very important, and if you really want a job, you should go out of your way to impress the employer.

I like to use College ruled notebook paper, but I try to keep the ripped edge on it. It tells them I learned a lot from schooling ;-D

I usually write my name in bubble letters at the top, and doodle in the margins while he's talking if I get bored.

It is the content that matters, but particularly for entry level business jobs, how you present the material is definately part of it.

If people are looking for someone who has a doctorate, for instance, they automatically skip to where their education is from, and what their publication record looks like. Style, format, etc. don't matter all that much.

On entry level jobs, a lot of the time managers are looking at applications that all look the same - 20 applicants for one job with a BA in business and a 3.0+ GPA. How do you distinguish them? Presentation is part of it, as it the quality of your statement of purpose, etc.

So, for these jobs, paper is just one small piece, but the benefits outweight the costs of not doing it.
