I'm applying to an assistant professor position at a private institution. I bought fancy resume paper on which to print my CV/resume. There are other components of the application package that I need to include:
- Official application (contact info, criminal background statements, employment records, etc.)
- Teaching statement
- Cover letter
Should all of these be printed on fancy paper? My feeling is that all except the official application should be, but at the same time that might make the relatively flimsy paper stand out.
The applications materials are being mailed directly to the chair of the department, and it is a very small department. There are only one or two other faculty.
