    A combination of Arial for the body and Times New Roman for the header. It's never failed to get me an interview, but I was applying to development jobs, not design.

    yea I don't want to use general fonts, I want mine to stand out, especially for a web designer position, right now I have the tahoma font, but still experimenting

    If you want a web safe font, I would use Trebuchet MS for headers and Georgia for text (very nice combination) however if you can use ANY font, I would go with good old Helvetica... designers have never stopped their love affair with this typeface.

    Times New Roman is the best for resume.

    # Avoid graphics, underlining, italics, shading and bold.
    # Avoid tabs.
    # Parenthesis, horizontal or vertical lines and brackets will not scan properly.
    # Avoid using compressed lines of print.
    # Use sans serif font in size 10-14.
