Epson helps professionals put their best foot forward while seeking that new career opportunity with its EcoTank® line of Supertank cartridge-free printers by offering powerful solutions to easily print out multiple copies of their resumes, work samples, portfolios, and more without worrying about running out of ink.

Here are the top reasons to leverage a cartridge-free printer when looking to boost career prospects:

  • Remarkable Convenience: When juggling multiple tight deadlines for applications and interviews, it's not practical to have to run out to the office supply store to pick up ink. Epson's EcoTank cartridge-free printers include up to two years of ink in the box1, letting users print thousands of pages hassle-free before having to refill ink and solving the problem of disrupting workflow at the most inconvenient time.
  • Significant Value and Savings: Print out all the important documents you need for each step of the job application and interview process, including hundreds of copies of resumes, work samples, and your whole portfolio without breaking the bank. Cartridge-free solutions such as the WorkForce®ET-4750 EcoTank include an equivalent of about 30 ink cartridge sets2 before ink needs to be replaced. When the time comes to purchase new ink, save up to 80 percent with low-cost replacement bottles vs. ink cartridges3.
  • Unrestricted Color Printing: Printing in color is typically viewed as a hefty expense, especially when documents include multiple images and graphs. However, job applicants often require high-quality, vibrant, and colorful documents to showcase their work samples and portfolio and stand out from their competition. Epson's EcoTank cartridge-free printers include enough ink to print thousands of black and color pages4, eliminating excessive expenses for the professional with high-volume printing needs.
  • Stress-Free: Every job applicant requires home office technology solutions that keep workflow efficient, streamlined, and competitive, so users can focus on what matters most— landing the next job opportunity. Cartridge-free printers like the EcoTank series not only offer convenience and value, but also reduce unnecessary stress with its user-friendly and improved design. EcoFit™bottles are uniquely keyed for each color to prevent misfiling and stops automatically when the tank is full.

3Savings comparison based on the purchase cost of replacement ink bottles and the cost of enough cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the bottles using the manufacturers' online prices and yields for the highest-capacity cartridges for the best-selling similarly featured consumer inkjet printers priced at $499 USD or less per industry available data, August 2018. Actual savings will vary based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions.

All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal.
