Greetings, I would greatly appreciate any thoughts from current or former hiring managers on watermarked resume paper. It seems that many of the high-end options do in fact have a watermark. Does using this type of paper indicate conscientiousness and attention to detail or is it just plain distracting? Also — cotton, linen, etc. — a good move or an indicator of trying too hard? Thank you so very much for your feedback. Respectfully, steve

"Print it on good quality white paper." That's from the "How to Prepare Your Resume" podcast. 

I searched the site, for a bit. That's all the official MT guidance I found at this time. You've probably already thought of this: it's likely best to spend 5 times as much time on building the resume then on the paper selection. 

I own the resume workbook. I recommend it. But, there is also no mention of paper selection, not that I can find at the moment anyway.
