Short and Sweet

Posted By Lily McCall, GAIN intern, Tuesday, November 9, 2010
How long is your resume? If you’ve had less than 10 years of work experience and your resume is more than one page, it’s time to pair it down... to one page only.

That’s right - resumes should be one page only if you have less than 10 years of experience. If you have more than ten years, it can be two pages, but two at the most.

Also - if your font is smaller than size 11 we have to try too hard to read your resume, so keep the font to size 11 or 12.

One last thing - your resume isn’t the place to add a headshot, or use color, or graphics. Keep it short and sweet and focus on highlighting your accomplishments... more on that tomorrow!
