That's true; I can't deny it. But in theory, having a spiffy-
looking resume might mean you would spend less time out of
work. So there are trade-offs. I went out and spent $700 on
an LED printer when I started seriously looking for work.
Until then, I had been taking my stuff to Kinko's--you can rent
a computer that does laser printout for $12/hr. The problem
w/ that, though, is that they have different fonts from fine,
so everything had to be reformatted. But if you only have a
few things to do, it works well.
