      YOUR CHOICE OF FONTS
      IS IMPORTANT
    • 1.1 DEFINITION
      font:
      • Specific type of lettering
      and numbering that you use
      in composing a written document
    • 1.2 THE PROPER FONT GIVES “READABILITY”
      • Select the proper type and your
      resume will be easily read
      by anyone who needs to view it
      (or by any employer’s scanning system)
      • Type Size matters: choose between 10.5 and 12 points;
      any smaller and it’s hard to see

      HOW
      FONTS
      DIFFER
    • 2.1 HOW FONTS DIFFER
      • Fonts come in distinct
      families
      • They differ in terms of their look,
      size, weight and spacing
    • 2.2 FONT FAMILIES - SIMPLE
      • Simple and clean like the
      following fonts guarantee the
      readability of the text
      (this is the font used
      throughout this slide presentation)
      Arial
      Verdana
    • 2.3 FONT FAMILIES - FANCY
      • Fancier fonts like the following
      may look great, but they
      can strain the eye or not
      get scanned properly
      Bradley
      Comic Sans

      “SERIF” FONTS
      VERSUS
      “SANS SERIF”
    • 3.1 TWO MAIN CATEGORIES OF TYPEFACES
      • There are two main categories
      of typefaces. One is called Serif,
      the other is Sans Serif
      • They differ mainly in terms of
      whether the font has extra markings or not
    • 3.2 “SERIF” FONTS
      • Tend to be more stylized
      • They all have little markings,
      curves or hooks as part of
      their design
      Times New Roman
      Bookman Old Style
    • 3.3 “SANS SERIF” FONTS
      • Literally means “without serifs”
      • Do not have little markings,
      curves or hooks as part of
      their design
      • Tend to be used most often
      in resumes
      Verdana
      Arial
