Rando Resume and CV Writing Advice. Who knew fonts mattered so much.
Calibri. As the default Microsoft Word font, Calibri is an excellent option for a safe, universally readable font. Professional résumé writer Donna Svei is a strong advocate of Calibri for résumés, noting on her blog AvidCareerist that this font is familiar to most readers and renders well on computer screens. Svei also noted that 12-point Calibri produces a “perfectly sized” two-page résumé of 550 to 750 words.
