By On Jan 27, 2018 Resume Format
How long should your Resume be? The "acceptable" length of a resume often creates a fair amount of discussion. Must my resume be only one page? Are three or even four pages too much? Again, a common sense approach should prevail. In most cases, a one-page resume is preferred, unless your qualifications are extensive. The more focused your document is, the more likely it will be read. Strive to never exceed 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pages. Remember your resume should not read like a job description. You do not need to recreate your entire past history. A resume should stress your qualifications, skills, and achievements instead of your duties and responsibilities.
We would encourage you to begin with notes and develop them into a rough draft. Think back over your experience and jot down highlights of your life, education and work experience. At this point don’t worry about the exact words or dates, concentrate on your accomplishments. As your record each positive point it should provide you with confidence to proceed.
What’s next? Our recommendation is that the next section of your resume should provide an overview of your career to date. Following a left to right margin line of separation you should have a section titled “Summary”, “Achievements” or “Accomplishments” or a similar word to reflect your style. Bold this and all section title words to draw attention in a cursory review by your reader. This "Summary" section should contain your bestselling features. We suggest five bulleted items which begin with action verbs. A selected list of action verbs are listed on this website for your use.
