How Long Should Your Resume Be?

Some experts advise against submitting very lengthy resumes, limiting the number of pages to one or two.  Nevertheless, before you start cutting off your own resume’s length, there are some things that you need to consider.

Don’t think about the pages.  In fact, a one-page resume may not always be ideal especially unless you do not any relevant information to include in your portfolio.  Don’t try to omit details just so you can limit the document to one page or two pages.

Remember your purpose for submitting a resume.  You want a potential employer to see that you are a qualified candidate for the job.  Depending on the position you are applying for, you may need to include more information in your resume to convince the hiring officer that you deserve to get hired.  So instead of worrying about the number of pages of your resume, you should focus on the value of the information that each page contains.Read More »How Long Should Your Resume Be?
