Handwriting a resume is not a common practice in today's job market, as most job applications are submitted electronically. Additionally, many employers use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to screen resumes, and handwritten resumes may not be able to be processed by these systems.

If you are applying for a job where a personal touch may be appreciated, such as in the creative arts or a customer-facing role, you may consider including a hand-written note on your resume. However, the main body of your resume should still be typed and presented in a professional manner.

In conclusion, while you can choose to handwrite a portion of your resume, it is not recommended as a general practice. A typed, professional-looking resume is typically preferred by employers.
