Although visual or infographic resumes have become trendy in some industries, it is always a safe bet to stick with traditional formatting: white page, black text, readable font. Choose a basic font such as Arial, Times New Roman, Calibri, Helvetica, or Georgia. Ideally, your font size should be no larger than 12 and no smaller than 10.5.
Regardless of the type of resume you choose, aim to tailor your resume to the job you are applying to. While it’s perfectly acceptable to use a resume template, which you adapt to fit each job description, it’s a bad idea to send the same exact resume to multiple openings, even within the same field.
