Kelly's Resume/Career Quick Tip of the Week
RESUME LENGTH: Should I keep it to one page is a question that comes up more than I would expect since I deal with senior management and executive level candidates. Sometime people mention only going back 10 years in order to fit on one page. Most professionals will benefit from showing more than 10 years of job history assuming their goal isn’t to mask numerous job changes and gaps. It’s difficult to give enough information on one page to write an effective resume at the senior or executive level. You need to show some accomplishments and your scope in each role. Contact information, education, software skills all need to be included. I like seeing a 1-3 sentence overview of the company size and niche following the company name and title section. You don’t need to include objective, anything personal, references listed or available upon request. Keep things concise, use a simple format and focus on your work experience and accomplishments. It’s very difficult to get all that on one page, two pages are certainly acceptable and stretching to three is fine if it's well written. A resume is a marketing document, providing only a title and no information may not sell folks on why they should talk to you. And if you are applying to a large company, AI may kick that skinny resume out over a lack of relevant keywords.
