How long should your Resume be!


I often advice people on making just a 1 page resume. But here is some good advice to consider

Resume Myth #1: Your resume should be only one page

Your resume should be as long or as short as it takes to clearly list relevant experience and give the reader a solid look at your career.

  • For recent college grads or those entering the workforce for the first time, one page is generally enough. But if you’ve had internships and real jobs while in school, don’t be afraid to use more than one page.
  • For those who have been working for years, your resume should likely be more than a single page.
