How long should my resume be?

Resume Length

Limit the length of your resume to 1-2 pages. You may be tempted to list everything you have ever done, thinking the longer the better, right?

Remember, your resume is a tool for generating sufficient interest to secure job interviews, not jobs. Think of your resume as a teaser so they will want to meet the real thing!

Use the interview process to provide more detailed descriptions of your accomplishments and skills.
