Fonts and Colours

Some jobseekers use a variety of large brightly coloured fonts on their CV, and they may even strike it lucky once in a while if they stumble upon an employer with the same taste in colours. However, just be aware that this kind of thing is very subjective, and the vast majority of employers tend to prefer something a lot more conventional/presentable.

Take a risk with something weird and wonderful if you really want to, but the best advice is to stick with something safer and more professional – e.g. a sensible font such as an Arial family font, and a reasonable size such as size 9 Arial. Anything smaller and it is difficult to read, and at the opposite end of the scale if your fonts are too large it usually isn’t well perceived by employers.
