Today’s resumes are leaner and meaner than their old counterparts.
Are there things people wouldn’t know from your job title?
The “best” font for a resume is, of course, a subjective choice.
Look for a font that looks clear, crisp and modern.
The modern resume, so often posted online, even needs to consider keyword placement and search engine results. This means less time and money spent selecting the perfect paper for your resume and more time choosing the right fonts and formats. Courier, for instance, looks like a typewriter font, and job marketers associate the font with out-of-date paper resumes.
Many Gen-X employers take the same view of Times New Roman.
