The First Avenue Career Fair is this Friday, March 2nd, and if you’re like me, you still haven’t printed out ANY resumes. Procrastination strikes again. Luckily, the Career Center not only has resume paper for sale (the good stuff, it’s linen people) but a handy printer that everyone can use. However, our dear printer is a little old and cranky, so getting around to actually figuring out how to use it can get frustrating.
At the back of the Career Center office, our ancient printer sits beneath a poster with instructions on how to print your resumes. However, if those still don’t make sense, bring this blog post with you and get to printing!
- If you don’t already have fresh, clean, snazzy linen resume paper, stop at the front desk first. If you’ve had a recent appointment with a counselor this school year, you get 10 sheets free. Any additional sheets are 10 cents.
- Head on back to the printer. You cannot print from a personal computer using WebPrint, so email your resume to yourself and print from one of the computers in the back, using your login information.
- If you have snazzy resume paper, hold it up to light and find the watermark. The logo (on paper from the Career Center), when faced the correct way, says “Southworth” and will be towards the bottom of the page. When you have it faced this way with the logo reading “Southworth,” feed the page, still facing this way, into the printer. This will ensure your resume is printed on the side where the watermark will also face the right way.
- On the Print screen, go to Printer Properties to make sure paper source is set to Manual Feed. The tray for manual feed should be open towards you in the very front of the printer. (where the blue paper is in the image)
- Only print one resume at a time! Our printer is an old, slow man.
Come print your resumes today! Remember, it’s only one dollar to have 10 sheets of quality paper. Read here on how to prep for the career fair this Friday. Visit us soon!
