Oh Calibri, how do I love thee as the best font for a resume? Let me count the ways:
1. 11-point Calibri produces perfect resume length, about 700 words on two pages.
2. Because of this, Calibri focuses job seekers on telling their readers a 100% relevant story of reasonable length — the best kind.
3. Font psychology research has shown that readers associate Calibri with stability. Employers like stability.
4. Calibri was made to be read on a computer screen, which is where most people read resumes. It renders beautifully.
5. Calibri is Microsoft Word’s default font. Thus, it’s widely available, familiar, and easy on eyes.
Yes, Calibri, when it comes to resumes, you’re simply fontastic!
