What's a good modern font to create a nice resume, currently using David but was thinking about something a little more stylish.

Thanks.

I think it's best to stick with any Sans, but I'm open to suggestions.

If it is a printed resume, you should use a serif font (or a clean looking serif/sans-serif hybrid). On a printed medium, serifs create a natural "flow" to the words on the page.

For digital, sans-serif all the way. The serifs on a digital medium can look ugly depending on the resolution, plus you have no guarantee that the recipient of your resume will have the fonts you used installed on their system (unless you embed them).

The best answer would be to create two versions, one with a sans-serif font for online submittal (e.g. emailing HR) and one with a serif font that you print out and take to the interview with you.

Times New Roman.

If you are using anything else I will throw it in the trash.

Neue Haas Grotesk is the most patrician typeface I know of

Personally, I've been using URW Gothic for years, and have had good luck with it.

It's clean, yet distinctive. It is easy to read, but looks a bit different from other sans-serif fonts.

URW++ gave it away for free, so you can find it all over the place. Here's a copy: http://fontsgeek.com/fonts/URW-Gothic-L-Book

Does nobody here use Comic Sans? Shows you're creative and think outside the box IMO

Arial Nova (quite different from classic Arial) is a good "free" one.
I personally go with Helvetica because it's a safe bet, but fonts like Akkurat and Gotham are also good (they are all paid though).

This is the most adult and boring thread I have ever seen.

Anyway, I use Time New Roman, mostly.

I've had good results with Tahoma. The thing with fancy non-standard fonts is, the recruiter might not have it on their end, so the resume might end up looking wonky on their side. Check the setting in Word to have the font included in the resume itself.
