Want a job? Whatever you do, don't use this one font on your résumé

Are you anxiously waiting for a call back from that company you sent your résumé to a week ago? If younever hear back from your prospective employer, you may have your font to blame for not landing your dream job.

Sure, your résumé is supposed to be a representation of who you are and highlight your accomplishments, skills, experience and education. But that could be quickly swept under the rug and never seen by anyone by one simple mistake. You might be using the wrong font.

A font can say a lot more that just the words printed on the page. Not all fonts are created equally and Bloomberg polled three font gurus to see what they had to say about fonts and your résumé. What they came up with is a list of the fonts you should use, the ones that are worth a try, and the "deadly four" that you should avoid completely. Their results might just surprise you.
