Resume Summary TipsThe typeface you choose for your resume is very important.  Your resume needs to be clear and concise as possible.  It also must be read on many types of devices from desktops to mobile phones.  Sans-serif typefaces are best for small screens and the easiest to read on all screens.  Make sure your resume is readable as research shows that hiring managers and recruiters only scan resumes for 6-8 seconds.  Typing in sans-serif fonts on your computer will give you a complete list,  but here are some of the most common:

Calibri

Times New Roman

Arial

Verdana

Cambria

Garamond

Book Antiqua

Trebuchet MS

Arial Narrow

Didot
