By On Nov 14, 2017 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.
To further make this point, beginning at the very top, the word "Resume" is not needed and a waste of space. The style and format of the document indicates its function, so a title is not needed. By this simple change, one line in length is saved for a more valuable message.
Does your resume work for you? The bottom line is that you must look good on paper, if you want to interview for the job. As the owner of a health care recruiting firm specializing in Health Information Management, I critique thousands of resumes per year. By employing the common sense concepts in this article you can enhance your resume, find the work of your dreams and change your life.
