1. Paper is important! Although it is the electronic age- when attending job fairs you will be handing out your paper resume. Not all papers are the same. Make sure to have your resume printed on 20-24 lb. bond resume paper in white, ivory or subtle gray. Bond or linen paper feels different and, therefore, stands out when stacked within a pile of other resumes. Resume paper also makes a statement of quality and distinction, which is a reflection on you.
