Resume Font Size

Resume Font Size and Type

By

Resume Font Size Copyright Alison Doyle
When you are selecting a font for your resume, the font size should be between 10 and 12 to allow for readability. Your name (which should be placed at the top of your resume) can be slightly larger.

Resume Font Type

Typically, you should use a readable, bookprint font such as Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri. However, if you are applying to a position in graphic design or advertising (where resume layout and design might be part of your assessment), employers might be open to alternative fonts.
