Resume Advice: Always One Page

Should your resume be a succinct one-pager? Or should you go for the full-meal deal? Here’s what my new boss said during our interview today just hours before I was hired.

It’s nice that this is one page. We had one guy with an eight page resume. We didn’t even read it.

So your current resume can’t fit on one page, huh? Cut that ego down a notch. Your resume is your business card. It’s not your autobiography. Summarize skills, condense work history, and include the full URL of your LinkedIn profile if they want to learn more about you.

My big goal is to write. My important goal is to write "The Story." My proudest moment is the most recent time I overcame a fear, which should have been today. I'm a better zombie than I was yesterday. Let's strive to be better everyday. (Avatar)
