As a default typeface in Microsoft programs for years and a commonly typeface used in print publications, like books, in the US for years, Times New Roman is overused. As such a ubiquitous and overused face, Time New Roman (TNR) blends into the crowd of other TNR documents. Résumés in TNR look like thousands of other résumés and loose visual distinction. Reports look like the same old (boring) reports. To make your documents stand out from the crowd go with another typeface (not Arial, which has similar overuse issues). Check out upcoming Typefaces of the Week for better ideas. For serif typefaces, I like classy Garamond for print and and fun Georgia for web.
