Is it OK for a resume to be more than one page?
A resume can be more than one page. But make your resume as short as possible while still showing you’re experienced enough. Since most managers skim, two-page resumes can be daunting. But very experienced applicants can’t usually prove their worth without a two page resume.
What rsum format do recruiters generally prefer?
Most resumes utilize the classic reverse-chronological format. Your name and contact information go at the top, followed immediately by your employment history. Starting with your current or most recent position and walking backwards through time, this format plainly shows recruiters exactly where you’ve been.
How should my CV be laid out?
How to Lay Out a CV. A CV layout is standardised: your name and contact details go on top, followed by a personal statement, experience, education, and skills. Hobbies and interests are optional. There’s a growing trend to make the CV one page long, but for more experienced candidates two and even three pages are safe.
