How many fonts should be on a resume?

Don’t use more than two fonts on your resume A good use of two fonts would be a serif typeface (e.g., Garamond) for your name, then a sans serif (e.g., Helvetica) typeface for the body of the resume. Using more than two fonts starts to make your resume look aimless, or even worse, like a ransom note!

What font should a 2019 resume be?

Arial. If you want to use a sans-serif font, Arial is considered by many to be the safest bet. Barbara Safani, executive resume writer, career coach, job search strategist and president of Career Solvers, told AOL Jobs that she likes to see the Arial font because the lines are clean and it’s easy to read.

Is Verdana a good font?

Verdana works better than Helvetica when it’s used very small: Verdana was designed by Matthew Carter, who also designed the Georgia typeface. Georgia is another screen-compatible typeface that also looks good in print, and is one of the standard typefaces pre-installed on Windows and Mac computers.

Is Arial same as Helvetica?

Arial is a more rounded design than Helvetica, with softer, fuller curves, and more open counters. But Helvetica still rules among graphic designers for print work, with its multiple weights and versions, as well as the rerelease of Linotype’s reworked, and very popular version, the Neue Helvetica┬« typeface.
