What Are the Best Resume Fonts?


According to The Muse, the best resume fonts are the classics: the fonts that come standard across a range of programs and aren’t overly flashy or designed. These fonts became standard because they’re easy on human eyes, and since they’re standard, ATSs are programmed to read them.

Here are the best fonts according to experts:

  • Arial

  • Cambria

  • Calibri

  • Garamond

  • Georgia

  • Helvetica

  • Times New Roman

  • Veranda

Arial is the font most commonly recommended by experts. Times New Roman was the go-to font for so long that some of our experts now say it appears dated, but it’s still a safe choice in terms of readability.
