What Font Should You Use on Your Resume?

Keep your resume consistent with one, safe font style, advises professional resume writer Steve Burdan.

Use a single font style throughout your resume, advised Steve Burdan, a certified professional resume writer.

Keep it safe and consistent when it comes to which font you use on your resume, advised professional resume writer Steve Burdan in the article “Top Nine Executive Resume Mistakes” for TheLadders Career Advice. Too many resumes are riddled with multiple font styles after people cut and paste  from past resume files, their LinkedIn profile, work performance review documents and other sources.

When it comes to fonts, Burdan advises clients not to go crazy. Stick with the tried and true: Times Roman, Garamond and Tacoma are all safe choices. Proofread to make sure fonts are consistent throughout.
