    I like TheSerif+TheSans.

    Each of them has so many styles you can do a lot of things with just those two.

    You're probably at a head start already just by thinking about what face to use! Most of the CVs I receive are either Times or that godawful font that LaTeX spits out..

    I think a CV is a particularly tough one as you want to both stand out from the 100 other documents that HR will receive, and also look refined and understated... so very few artistic embellishments should go in there..

    I think any font with several weights is great, as you can combine light, medium and bold for details, main descriptions and headings...

    I'm currently using Helvetica, but am thinking of changing to Gotham.

    Gotham family works best. Readability, modernity does the work well.

    On my personal work, I actually prefer sticking with one typeface.

    That being said, my go to is Proxima Nova and Georgia Pro.

    fonts for cv's

    the things to consider are:
    • does the typeface fax well? (don't use anything super thin or light)
    • if the resume is in word, unless you use a font that is all all PCS (both mac and PC) then you must use something like Arial, verdana, times, georgia (the old HTML standards) because if the user does not have the font you select, all the formatting will be jacked.
    • if you just PDF your resume, you don't have to worry.
    • linked in should be your resume these days

    use something basic like helvetica, and make your resumer stand out with a logo mark or add jazz only to your name and not the body
