I'm going in for an interview and I have to bring in my resume. Should I staple it or should I just leave it as is?

I like staples but my co-workers prefer paper clips or nothing, so I'm glad I wasn't expected to bring in a copy of my resume to my interview for other people. I brought my own, stapled, naturally. They printed out their own copy and could attach them as they so chose. That would really stink to have to do that yourself.

i'd bring a flash drive or your laptop with you just in case they don't want to bother with paper.


Is 2 pages (stapled or paper-clipped or however) better than printing front and back (with a thick paper so the type doesn't bleed through)?

Do not staple. Your name should be at the top of the second page.

Your name, Page 2

I never staple a hand delivered resume. I put my email address and name at the top and bottom of the pages, people in interviews sometimes sort them, look at one page, do lots of things. I wouldn't recommend it, but in reality, it don't really matter.
