Font used in resumes in this website and other questions
Dear Kathi... Thank you for this free online service and a wonderful website. Your resumes were of a great help to me as I am in the process of drafting a resume for my spouse.
Firstly, I'd like to know the font that you've used for the resumes posted on this website. It isn't Times New Roman nor is it Arial, and it's too good.
Secondly, I've understood that highlighting one's professional experience as specific achievements in terms of numbers and percentages rather than just listing the responsibilities of one's role is eye-catching for a recruiter and which would help in landing interviews.
Now the problem is that, like many others, my spouse with his vast years of experience as a procurement officer, never actually evaluated himself in that regard. I (nor he) hence have no idea what to jot down as his professional experience except for the usual responsibilities of a procurement official, which I believe would not impress a recruiter.
I feel sad about this since he is very good at what he does and is very experienced, yet will not be able to impress any new recruiters to hire him.
What do you suggest to make his resume impressive especially in the professional experience section? I am looking forward to your reply.
Thanks and Regards,
Thanks for your kind comments, and I apologize for not answering this sooner; I've been dealing with some health problems in a family member, for whom I am caregiver.
Anyway, as to fonts, I'd have to know which page you are referring to, as I have posted many different samples and they vary with the fonts used.
As to how to make a resume show highlights when you don't have numbers, just be sure to use lots of strong action words
and to state things he accomplished over routine duties. I don't know much about what a procurement official does, but be sure to state what he did that makes him so special at his job... what sets him apart from others in his field.
Hope this helps...
