8 Best Fonts to use in your Resume

November 8, 2015


Your resume is a marketing tool to showcase your professional experience. But are you doing enough? Why not give your prospective employer a glimpse of your personality? Leave a lasting first impression, even before you arrive for your interview, through your resume. A great way to let yourself peek through your resume is your choice of font. 


Fonts are broadly classified into 4 groups:

  1. Serif Type Styles

  2. Sans Serif Type Styles 

  3. Script Type Styles

  4. Decorative 

While Script Type and Decorative font styles should be avoided at all costs, here are 4 font styles from each of the remainder categories to choose from.


Serif Type Style

Serifs are the small lines tailing from the edges of letters and symbols.




 A simple and elegant font, it is said to convey "a sense of fluidity and delicacy".  A great alternative to the Times New Roman, the modern version has the benefit of giving your resume a classic, polished look that’s much more interesting. As a bonus, if you’re struggling to condense your resume to one to two pages (which is a good idea), Garamond can help you fit more text on a page without sacrificing readability by lowering the font size or crowding your design by tightening up the spacing.




 Cambria, a serif font, is part of a suite of typefaces called the ClearType Font Collection. It is designed specifically to perform well on computer monitors, while still remaining applicable for print. This makes Cambria a good choice for both online and printed resumes.




 Constantia’s rounder letterforms make it look more friendly and less stuffy than many serif typefaces. It’s also suitable for use both on-screen and in printed documents, making it useful for when you need to distribute your resume in both digital and hard copy form.
