Is it taboo to have a two-page resume? All the experience I’ve listed is relevant to the job I’m applying for.
Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question:
Q#231 Rez should be as long as it needs to be to convey value. If info pertains, don’t sweat arbitrary limits. (@dawnbugni)
Q#231 I have no problem with two page resumes, so long as there is only relevant information included (for the job). (@gradversity)
Q#231 A two-page resume is fine as long as it is relevant and provides the information you need to convey in concise manner. (@DebraWheatman)
Q#231 Advice: NOT AT ALL! 2 pages is fine as long as all the information is relevant. Good luck! (@louise_fletcher)
Q#231 It better be amazing, that’s all I have to say. No “1/4 page” on the second one. Make it good or cut it. (@beneubanks)
Q#231 Yes, normal 2 have 2 page resume. Day of the 1 page resume is gone (this rule doesn’t apply to gov job apps). (@kgrantcareers)
Q#231 Only 15+yrs exp or more merits 2pgs. Long resumes = yawn & placement in ‘maybe’ pile. Keep it short! (@jtodonnell)
Q#231 No 1 answer re: length of resume. Depends (industry, yrs of exp, etc.) More imp: CONTENT. (@keppie_careers)
