A resume more than 2 pages is too much. A resume is meant for relevant work history for jobs you are applying for. Of course there are exceptions - like a federal or military resume. Those are set to a specific criteria that had to be followed for document review.

Think strengths, growth and relevance for an outstanding resume.

In the eyes of recruiters, job applicants are defined by what they say they are on a sheet a paper – and yes, you’re right, I’m talking about your resume. A masterfully-written resume can be the difference between landing an interview versus having your application thrown out in a matter of mere seconds. While the majority of job seekers know the basics of how to include their work history and job skills on their resume, few have in their arsenal... see more

I am writing my first resume and every word I put down on the page seems like a make or break. I second guess what I write a lot. I must have done like 30 revisions at this point. AHHHHHHHHH!!! Initially I think it takes a very loooong time to write a great cover letter and resume, but after that I am sure it will just be small changes here and there right? Right now it’s just a struggle. How many of you found it stressful to write your resume?

U can Google some templates to have examples

Let’s face it.. No one likes writing their resume, NO ONE. And sometimes we fall into the habit of putting together a resume in a hurry, and not stopping to take the time to check details like spelling, grammar, formatting, etc. And while you may think that your extensive and impressive work experience is enough to outweigh these types of things, unfortunately it’s not. Your resume is the first representation of yourself that a potential employer... see more
