Thank you for this Anne. It is always hard to set up a resume and make sure it looks really good before handing it to a potential employer. I, myself, found it a lot easier to use a postage meter. This little machine prints the correct amount of postage for each piece of mail, either directly on the piece or on a label to be put on the piece. At this rate, resumes would be sent out all over the place. I actually used it last week and my goodness, it was awesome. Hope this finds you well!
