Is It Better to Have a 1-Page or 2-Page Resume?

Is It Better to Have a 1-Page or 2-Page Resume?

Should your resume be 1 page or 2 pages to make an impact? Which is better in your situation? Learn how to make the right choice and the right impression.

As seen in:

The length of your resume depends on your experience. An entry-level resume doesn’t really have to go beyond a one-page resume, while a candidate with over 5–10 years of experience can go for a two-page resume

 

Make sure spilling over 1 page is justified, though. If it’s just a couple of lines that don’t fit, consider a different resume layout (like a two-column resume) to keep the information under 1 page. 

 

Explore a variety of resume templates to see which one will reflect your professional achievements and your career path in the best way.
