Tis the season for folks to be thinking about making a job change and if one believes any of the recent hiring surveys there will (thankfully) be a few more jobs to be had.
The flip side is other surveys show that at least in spirit, most people are looking for a new company to call their home away from home.
So more jobs and even more competition.
In January I am scheduled to speak at seven events about job search, networking and LinkedIn.
So let’s talk about resumes.
I would rather not.
I hate ‘em.
But I am always asked about them and they are at the moment still the best tool for most job seekers and companies. I do not want to debate that part.
I want to debate something that bothers me even more...
1 page resume or 2? Or in some cases 3?
How long should a resume be is as
long short as it takes for you to show an employer why they should interview and ultimately hire you.
