Resume Writing Guide

A person’s resume can be considered a personal marketing brochure, and the goal is to sell yourself. What information must be included? What can you leave out? How long should a resume be? What should the layout look like? All of these details are important, so listed below are guidelines on how to write a resume potential employers will notice.

Resume length: A resume should be concise, with a two-page maximum length, but one page is preferred. Depending on experience, a one-page resume should be used if you have less than 10 years of experience or if you’re pursuing a radical career change and previous experience is not relevant to your new career goal. Consider a two-page resume if you have 10 or more years of experience or if your field requires technical skills, a list of certifications and the like that can validate your technical knowledge.
