RGB or CMYK for resume/portfolio

Is it best to use RGB color-space when you don’t know if the end-user of the document is going to be printing the document on an inkjet or laser printer? For example, even though my home printer has 4 cartridges (CMYK) it still uses RGB ‘drivers’.


I would not assume the person receiving your resume will print it, unless they’ve told you so.

Personally I would stick to RGB for a few reasons:

Your resume will likely be viewed on screen. I don’t know any studios who print out all the resumes they receive, it’s too much. If they DO print your resume out, at this point I would think the interview will make the difference.

Second, you will benefit from a larger gamut which will make your work look better than CMYK.
