Even with digital resume submissions, there are situations when you need to print copies of your resume. Print out a professional copy of your resume if:
The job posting requests a physical copy. Some employers may specify in the job listing that they want a mailed copy of your resume. A job may also only give you their postal address as contact information to indicate they want your printed resume.
You have an in-person interview. Bringing your printed resume to an in-person interview shows you’ve prepared to answer questions and provide helpful information. A printed copy of your resume can also help both you and the interviewer remember important points about your qualifications during the interview.
You’re going to a career fair, exposition or related event. When attending a job fair or similar type of professional event, bring multiple printed copies of your resume. This way, you can let multiple potential employers or recruiters keep your resume and contact you at a later date.
You’re asking your network to help you find a job. Some people turn to their professional network to aid in their job search. Your network may find it easier to recommend you to potential employers if they already have physical copies of your resume they can distribute to their contacts.
