Bond Paper Printer Available at Rose Hill: Make Your Resume Stand Out



Most job and internship applications require you to submit your resume electronically. But when you go on the interview, it's a good idea to bring a hard copy of your resume because the interviewer might not have a copy handy.

Don't hand over a resume printed out on regular white paper. That paper is good enough for printing out directions to the interview location or information about the company that's interviewing you. 

Everything counts on a resume, including the paper. So what should you do?

Print your resume and cover letter on bond paper.

Bond paper is higher quality paper than the cheap stuff sold at Staples. It has a rich look and feel. Those qualities enhance the content on your resume. Using paper that looks good and feels good helps your resume stand out from the others in the pile on the interviewer's desk.

A printer with bond paper is available at Rose Hill.

Here's what you need to know:

Where Language Learning Center computer lab in the basement of Keating Hall, room B-25

Cost $0.20 a page.  

How Select Resume Printer from the drop-down menu when printing.


When Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 10 p. m.; Friday, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. - 9 p.m.
