I've got a background in typesetting, and there are studies on serif vs sansserif fonts. Times variations are easier to read and look "more formal" per the studies, than Arial/Helvetica variations.
So, I have to vote for Wingdings .... :-D
But seriously, I use Times New Roman because of what I studied during my typesetting years. My resume is done up as a marketing piece, using scientific studies on marketing, and it got me six interviews in one week, and every one of those ended up with an offer. Based on that, I have to say the resume worked. Take that for what it's worth.
I definitely wouldn't attribute all of that to the font. It's a minor piece of the puzzle. But it is a piece of it.
