Does your resume “bleed” onto two pages (or three pages) and you can’t quite figure out how to eliminate those few extra lines to bring it back onto one page? There are several tricks to get rid of wasted space and make your resume appear more sharp and concise (and more likely to be read).
1. Minimize the contact information. You don’t need to list your address, three phone numbers, your fax, and an email address. Now that almost everyone has an email and cell phone, there is no need to bombard employers with so many ways to reach you. Employers want one to two simple ways to get a hold of you. You can even get away with the following:
Ed Smith | New York, NY | 212.555.5555 | firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Bring “danglers” up to the previous line (by that, I mean any line that only contains one to three words). Edit down your content by removing unnecessary words (e.g. "very" and "that" are often arbitrary and waste space) to bring that line up.
