Career Services Resume Rules part 2

What Are the Other (Sometimes Breakable) Rules of Resume Writing?

  • While most recently graduated college-student resumes are one page, this is not an absolute rule, IF you have the right combination of experience and education. Your resume must be long enough to detail what you have to offer a potential employer, BUT short enough to entice that employer to want to know more (that is, invite you for an interview.)
  • As a general guideline, if possible have your resume fill one page.
  • Absolutely not over 2 pages long
