Passe Job Search Technique Number 1

Don’t use nubby beige or pink or stone-grey resume paper, or any other kind of special paper or matching envelopes, in your job search. Dedicated-use resume paper is a 1980s artifact. Most of your resumes will reach employers electronically, in which case the employer will print it out. For resumes you print on your own, use plain white bond paper. (If you want to use a heavier stock than usual, do it.) Keep resume formatting simple. You don’t need horizontal lines or curlicues, unless you are yourself a creative person, in which case you can go hog-wild with artistic expression. What matters in your resume is its content and accomplishments.
