Resume Length

The length does not equate to being more qualified for the position.

Reviewed 2 resumes yesterday: 1 showed 25 years experience in 2 pages, the other showed 7 years experience in 5 pages.

After 1-2 pages, drowsiness tends to start seeping in for the reader.

Tip – Ask yourself: “if I was an outsider reading my own resume, would everything I have listed be relevant for this position, and how often am I repeating myself?”

If you need a shot of espresso when reading your own resume, then the reader will probably need a doppio.

Maybe there’s some room for consolidation.

If you want help or suggestions, send me a message (and Lavazza).
