VerdanaPsychology of Resume Fonts

So make your choice of resume fonts wisely, depending on whether your resume will be printed on paper... or viewed online. Above all, be sure that your resume is always easy-to-read and professional in appearance, and you can't go wrong.

So you may need to experiment a bit to get your resume fonts to look the way you want them to.

Interesting questions Nicholas. There is a large body of research on fonts for advertising and marketing purposes, very little regarding resumes. Thank you, Donna

Also beware of being too creative. "I don't like it when I receive resumes with funky fonts," says Mona Abdel-Halim, co-founder of the Web-based resume tool Resunate, who echoed other experts we spoke to. "It is not professional and it makes the resume harder to read." When choosing resume fonts, opt ones that are widely used and readable, such as Calibri or Arial, and use no more than two fonts with their associated bold and italic styles.
