- The length of this 6 page resume can depend on how much experience you have and how much relevant information you have to share. Most jobs and industries require a one-page resume, while some positions and industries have a two-page resume requirement. Your resume should include all relevant work and academic history, as well as relevant skills and qualifications.
- Most employers require a one-page resume, but some positions and industries have a two-page resume requirement. Include all relevant work and academic history, as well as relevant skills and qualifications.
- Some companies may require a two-page resume, especially if you have a lengthy work history and you are applying for a new position or industry. The resume you use for two pages may be a summary of your most recent work history and education, or it may include information about your preferred qualifications and job description.
- In a two-page resume, you can use a bulleted list of your most notable and relevant achievements and job responsibilities to demonstrate your experience and skills. If you have a relevant degree or relevant certifications, you might consider placing them in their own section, as they may be important factors in the hiring process.

Your input is very much appreciated .
First off, the content is very important. Having a strong resume will allow you to beat out other applicants, which in turn will increase your chances of getting the job. Having a strong resume will also allow you to beat out other candidates from other industries, which will increase your chances of getting a job.
The main reason why I decided to share this is because I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about how they applied for 50+ jobs and only got 1 or 2 interviews. It happens to me too. I think it’s pretty discouraging when I spend months working on a resume and nothing happens.
It is simple. Any more and it is too cluttered. I cannot give you a better example than what I have here. It is clean. I cannot describe how good clean looking resumes are. There is something about a well designed resume that hooks the eye and makes you want to read more. Easy to read.
I went from a plain black and white, no headers, no summary to a well designed, aesthetically pleasing resume with no gaps. I cut out my name, addresses, and phone number. My education has been re-organized. I changed from a reverse chronological to a simply chronological.
I think the template itself is pretty eye-catching. with this template I can adjust the padding on my TN and ST sections to whatever needs adjusting they need at that point in the hiring process. With this template I can adjust the font sizes depending on the industry.
I started in IT, then moved to project management. I am now looking to move back to IT, but not project management, for a different company. I’ve found one I’m very interested with a friend of mine who is a very successful executive in IT.
It is easy to read. Your resume does not need to be more than a page long. Formatting does not need to be art-directed. Color does not need to be used. It is not critical to have a “Career Objective” section.
The first main reason is that it makes the content of my resume fit perfectly into 1 page (my previous resume was almost 2 pages long with a lot of empty space). Another reason is that I like how simple and straightforward it looks. There’s nothing flashy or “artsy” about it.
My old resume was wordy and didn’t express what I did in a concise manner. My new resume is very simple and straight to the point. I can’t tell you how many applications I get each week that I can’t even relate to the posting because it’s too long and detailed. Most of the time I don’t even get a response to the application. I think I have finally found the perfect resume for the job position.
I made this resume template in Photoshop and then I created a new cover letter in Word that was optimized for the content of the resume. I then exported both the resume and the cover letter as PDFs. I know Photoshop is a graphics software and not a text software, but when I exporting as a PDF, the text looks great even if you’re viewing it on a computer screen.
