Resume Tip of the Week #4

4 in a row! I’m more proud of that than I should be…

Here’s a tip I’ve heard described as super helpful by many job seekers and clients. It’s also a real easy one.

Never use more than 2 fonts. Sans serif fonts should be used for content and read better on computers (examples include Calibri and Arial). Serif fonts work better for headings and come across strongly in print. A nice Cambria at a size 14 or above makes a powerful statement and catches the eye. It’s OK to experiment a little with fonts, but don’t go too crazy. When in doubt, Times New Roman always works, and never looks bad.

Got a preferred font I didn’t mention? Let me know.

Happy hunting as always!
