How many pages should my resume be?

If your resume is too short or skimpy, recruiters and hiring managers will think you don't have a lot to bring to the table; however, if your resume is too long, readers will likely get bored or annoyed. When it comes to writing your resume, size is based on your level of experience and occupation.

The one-page resume is ideal for entry-level workers, new college graduates, if you have a few years of work experience, and those looking to make a career change and do not have much experience relevant to your new goal.

Client Centric can create for you a one-page resume. For more information on our pricing, please click here.

A two or more page resume makes sense for many job seekers, especially those who are further along in their career, with 10 or more years of relevant job experience. The extra pages may be needed to convey all of the critical information an employer needs to know.

Client Centric can also create for you a longer and more informative CV. For more information, please click here.

In the end, the length doesn't matter quite as much as the content filling the pages that entices the hiring manager to want to learn more. A resume is like the blurb of a book, designed to make you want to read more.
