As someone relatively inexperienced in the working world (I’ve only been out of school for a couple of years), something I struggle with when writing my resume is deciding just how much information to put on there. The traditional wisdom is that a resume should be brief, and should fit on one page. Often when detailing the projects I’ve worked on, I end up pushing the boundaries of one page, especially when writing a ‘general’ resume that isn’t tailored to a specific position.
I know some people do two pages (one front, one back) for their resume. I’ve had some people tell me that I should do the same, while others warn that I shouldn’t!
I want to hear what you guys have to say. How many pages is your resume? Why?
