In the IT arena, I believe that resume font accounts for less than it would for those seeking a position in something like marketing, public relations, or at the executive level. Honestly, most resumes in IT get screened by team members looking for references to specific skills and work experience before it gets passed on for serious consideration by HR. If debating between Arial vs Times New Roman vs. Verdana, then perhaps go with whatever font the organization uses on their own website. Changing font style could fall under the general guideline of tailoring your resume to the job, although I personally don't tailor my resume; I am who I am at this point in my career.
I would tend to agree. We just got done hiring a couple of DBAs, and the font of the resumes we got in never came up at all in any of our conversations. As long as it isn't something really wacky or too big/too small, I doubt anyone will really care anymore. Especially for Sr. level positions.
