Resume Writing Tips from an Expert
For the next 4 weeks, each Friday we will give out 1 key tip for writing the perfect resume yourself and keep you coming back for more helpful career advice!
Ok here we go….
Resume Length – This is one of the most frequent questions we get here at SkyHigh Resumes and Calgary Resume. “How long should my resume be”
Well the old saying “less is more” is definitely true in writing the perfect resume. You always, and we mean always want to keep your resume to 3 pages or less. Now the average resume for a career professional with 5+ years of experience is 2 pages, however if you are in a senior level position, or have more than 20 years of experience 3 pages is acceptable. Keep in mind, if you go back 20 years, you want to ensure that every position is relevant to the one you are applying to! For example, if you were a Janitor from 1990-2004 and from 2004-2016 you were a Marketing Coordinator, you don’t want to include the Janitor position. Ok folks, signing off. Until next Friday!
