By On May 14, 2018 Resume Format
There are numerous ways to accomplish the goal of resume brevity and still optimally reflect the depth of your qualifications for an opportunity. Allow us to walk you through a resume line by line, section by section. Remember, every word, every line contributes to the length and to your résumé’s purpose.
Sometimes, but rarely, an objective can be beneficial when applying for a certain position. By creating a targeted objective you can zero-in on one opportunity. But even then I would caution that this can be a self-limiting exercise. Because if the position has already been filled your specific objective may eliminate you from consideration for other opportunities which may exist and you are not aware of. Our advice is to stay away from an "objective statement."
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.
