    I have a friend that was in a similar situation to you. She's an accountant and has had several jobs in the last several years. Her most recent issue was that she had gotten laid off (again) and found a job with a Big 5 and hated it so much she quit after only being there 6 weeks. She was working 60+ hours a week and even ended up working during the major holidays. She was able to find something 3 months later. I believe she left that position and another short term job off her resume.

    I would just go ahead and look for something else. It's not unusual for recent grads to have several jobs in a few years. This is my 3rd in 5 years. Having a number of jobs that last less than a year each is a lot more sketchy. Next time you interview try to meet with someone on your level, they're a lot more likely to be more honest about the job and the company.

    If you've been there a short enough time, I'd just leave that job off your resume entirely. Could you quit and do something else for a little, like take extra training classes?

    Default What font is your resume in?

    I'm updating my resume a bit and considering changing the font. I could use some inspiration. What font do you have your resume in and what field do you work in? Generally speaking, do you consider a serif or san serif to be preferable? Thanks!

    Mine and the vast majority that I have revised are in Times New Roman (10 or 12 point).

    Mine is in a serif font: Garamond. I prefer it over Times New Roman. Serif fonts are easier to read than san serif fonts. I work in the journalism/publishing industry and do a lot with graphic design/pre press work for magazines.

    I suppose it depends on what kind of message you want to send with your resume.

    I use Garamond. I'm not crazy about Times and want to use a serif font.

    For my one resume, the font is Arial, with the heading style in David.

    For my other resume the font is in Verdana.

    I use microsoft sans serif. I'm a fan of san serifs for this sort of thing. It just looks cleaner to me.
