Resume Fonts Selection
You will want to optimize your resume for each job you apply for.
If you are changing your information for each job you may need to add volume or take some away to make it fit on one page. Use common fonts since these days most employers will electronically scan resume. Uncommon resume fonts may be difficult to convert by the OCR (optical character recognition) program.

Resume Fonts Selection

  1. Basic Choices:
    Try to use easy to read resume fonts such as arial, courier, georgia, tahoma, times new roman or verdana. You want the employer to be able to quickly scan through your information. You want to do gain every advantage that you can, if you can do something as simple as picking the best resume fonts for your resume then all the better. The employer will be searching for certain keywords and you want them to be easily found. The information in this guide can be applied to your cover letter, reference page and other job related documents.
  2. Need More Substance?
    Do you feel like your resume looks empty because you don't have much of an employment history or much education? You don't want to add filler and fluff just to add volume so instead you can use resume fonts what use more space on the page. That way it won't look like you are trying to make it look more impressive than it really is. Monospaced resume fonts such as courier could be used or resume fonts with wider spacing like verdana, tahoma or georgia. You can also make the size larger.
  3. Too Much To Say?
    It is generally accepted that you want to use one page and possibly two if it is really necessary. In this case, you will want to work on consolidating what you wrote. You can use arial, which is one of the more compact resume fonts. You can make the size smaller, but not too small that makes it more difficult to read and some people have poor vision which adds to the difficulty. The point is to make it easier to read so be mindful of that when using smaller sizes.
  4. White Space:
    Bear in mind that having white space between your sections, lists, etc. also enables it to be read more quickly and it is more comfortable for the eyes. This can also be used to some degree to space things out to look more substantial.
