How long should my resume be?
Answered by Stephanie, Hiring Expert at Asurion, on Monday, August 31, 2015
There is not one right answer to this question. The length of a resume depends on the amount of work experience a person has. For a college student, I recommend keeping your resume to one page in length. After college, your high school experience isn't relevant, so save space by leaving that off your resume and focusing on experience you've had throughout your college years. 

For more help in building your resume, seek advice from the staff at your university's career center.

The length of the resume depends on your work experience. If you 're out of high school or college, it should be no longer than one page. I wouldn't go over two pages. You resume should include education, work experience and skills. You can note that references are available upon request instead of including names and numbers for your references. That will save some space on your resume also.

I am a solid believer in one page. My personal preference is to keep your resume to one page, and if you want to expand more to make a professional portfolio online and insert that link to your resume. One page for every 10 years of applicable experience is also acceptable. However, my personal preference is to keep your resume one page and expand on your LinkedIn or other professional portfolio. Best wishes!

I would stick to a one page resume. When going through a pile of resumes, some recruiters only spend 5 seconds or less skimming your resume. I would highlight your education and work experience. Always have someone else read your resume and check for spelling errors, especially in words that are in all CAPS. A lot of programs do not "spell check" words that are in CAPS. Best of luck with your resume!
