You’ve reached the final round of interviews and they want to meet you face-to-face. You will need to bring printed copies of your resume and the paper you choose says a lot about you. Do you value quality, did you take the time to create a professional and impactful document? When choosing the paper stock for your printed resume:
- Select a quality paper stock in a 24-28 weight. Lighter screams “cheap” and heavier feels like a birthday card.
- The color is important as well – white, off-white, cream, or light grey is appropriate. No loud or garish colors.
- A cotton or linen-based stock brings softness and texture.
Your paper choice may not seem important, but it reflects your style and attention to detail.
