Lengths of resumes, CVs, summaries, etc are always a discussion. It all depends on your experience, demands of the employers you’re targeting and industry. Here’s an easy way to remember it.
CVs – 5+ pages
Executive Profiles – 3-4 pages
Experienced Professional (IT related) – 3 pages (the 3rd page can be a list of all your technical skills so it’s nice and loaded with acronyms)
Experienced Mid-Level Professional – 2 pages
Students / Recent Graduate / Entry Level / Trade & Union Employees – 1 page
A resume should consist mainly of a summary, areas of expertise, experience, education/certifications/licenses and software skills. It’s your one chance to impress employers and you have to send it out to thousands of them so make it good!
