Printing helps jobseekers put their best foot forward (2017/04/05)

Graduation time is almost here, and for many young people across the country, that means it’s time to start their job search. A well-crafted résumé can be an important piece of seeking employment, and a print company can be counted on to help.

When planning a résumé, care should be taken with its design and layout. While creativity is important, it’s a good idea to avoid the use of graphics, brightly colored papers or fonts that are difficult to read. According to Undercover Recruiter, Times New Roman in 12-point size and clear black type is a popular choice, as it’s easy to read. Other serif fonts like Garamond or Calisto also make good choices, but it’s a bad idea to mix too many different text styles in one document. Stationery printers will be able to use these fonts, plus any others a customer wishes.

A résumé can be divided into different sections for ease of reading, and to make it simple for the reader to find what he or she is looking for. The heading should be indicated by using bold, capitalized or underlined text, and it’s also advisable to make the size of the font between 14 and 16 points.

The résumé can then go into details about education, experience, what position the person is seeking or their career objective, and also their core strengths. Once it is ready, a printing services company will be able to digitally print it onto high-quality paper, and it will then be ready to use.

Résumés can be a vital part of making a first impression, and with the help of a print company, there is every chance it will be a positive one.
