Does my resume have to be one page?

The idea of squeezing your entire life’s work experience onto one page might sound like an intimidating, if not impossible, task. But more and more lately you hear people talking about the importance of keeping your resume short and simple. Is this necessarily a good idea?

In short, yes. Recent research has found that most employers spend only a fractional amount of time reviewing your resume before making a decision to interview you. That average length of time is anywhere from 15 to 30 seconds. With that in mind, the last thing you want to do is to send an employer a mini novel.

Professional resume writing services can help you condense your resume to a single page and increase your chances of landing an interview.
