You should use an easy-to-read, professional kind of font on your resume. Hiring managers quickly scan resumes for relevant information, so one of the following professional fonts is your best bet:
- Times New Roman
- Arial Narrow
- Trebuchet MS
You can pick a font based on the job to which you’re applying. For example, Calibri’s warm, soft design makes it perfect for healthcare and education resumes, while Cambria’s formality is best for law or academia applications.
Generally, your font size should be between 10.5 and 12 points, but readable size varies among fonts. Vary your font size between 10.5 and 12 points, and choose whichever makes your resume look the most professional.
