You should use an easy-to-read, professional font on your CV (also commonly called a resume). Hiring managers quickly scan CVs for relevant information, so you need to write your CV in something that is easy to read and skim.
We recommend that you avoid any font that is flowery or fancy, and instead rely on one of the following professional fonts:
- Arial or Arial Narrow
- Trebuchet MS
Generally, your font size should be between 10.5 and 12 points, but readable size varies among fonts. Vary your font size between 10.5 and 12 points, with headings slightly larger or bolded to stand out. Make sure you print out your CV prior to submitting it to ensure it reads well and the font sizes are not too bit and not too small.
