Best Fonts for Resume Reading

Will your resume pass the 7 second rule?

The average amount of time a Recruiter/Hiring Manager spends reviewing your resume is 7 seconds. This is primarily because they are reviewing hundreds of resumes a day. So it is essential that your resume is easy to read and all of the important bits are quickly found. Your resume’s font and format can make all the difference in getting the reader’s attention.

Many job seekers attempt to standout by making the resume appear different. However, fancy fonts and creative formatting actually make it difficult for the reader to discover the interesting parts of your resume. Your words, skills and facts will make you stand out far more than fancy fonts.
