January 26, 2007, Newsletter Issue #68: Entry Level Resumes Length

Tip of the Week

Looking for the right length for your first resume? As a rule, don't bulk it up with fluff, be honest and don't make the font huge to lengthen your resume.

If you think about it, due to a lack of job descriptions, an entry level resume should only be one page long. The resumes of experienced professionals are often only one page long, so someone who is applying to an entry level job shouldn't be able to justify a two-page resume.
