Using the same font can give your resume and cover letter a consistent appearance that is more professional, and that doesn’t make it appear that you are an indecisive applicant who can’t even stick with a single font. Simple, modern fonts are the best: Avenir, Calibri, Cambria, Constantia, Corbel, Franklin Gothic, Garamond, Arial, Georgia, Gill Sans, Veranda, and Helvetica work best. Also, stick with a 10- or -12-point font, which gives you plenty of room for all your information while not giving your reader eye strain.
There is a caveat to these rules: If you are applying for a creative job, varying your type size and font can give you a greater flare, which may be important for the job. Just don’t go overboard – it’s still a resume that must be easily read and may be perused by non-creative types who might see it as too whimsical.
