By On May 15, 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.
Are you changing careers, have a gap in your work history or are you applying for a job that doesn’t match your most recent position? Then a functional resume might be one for you.
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.
