#1 Unless you are a 55 year old Doctor of Medicine, who is also a Professor of Medicine, and a Department head at a major hospital, your resume shouldn't be two pages long.

Brief and concise, with no fluff.

#2 This is actually now untrue. After a lot of research and talking to professionals, it is acceptable for any job seeker to have 2 pages. Of course, as always, it should be done in a very professional way. I have also found that employers are looking for your last 10 years of work or less; it would be hard to put that on one page.

If you can fit it onto one page then great! But if not, don't fret-just make sure it is meaningful.

And I agree, NO FLUFF!

How many pages should a business CV or Resume have?

In most cases, a professional resume or CV should not exceed 1 page in length. However, depending on the particular job you are applying for, it may be appropriate for the number of pages to increase to 2. Your resume should not exceed this length. If you have had a great deal of relevant experience worth mentioning, or a very long career to note, this would merit a more thorough and detailed business resume and therefore, a longer CV.

There is no hard limit. Most resumes should be no more than 2 pages long. Advanced professionals usually have 3 page resumes or longer.

How many pages should a resume be?

If this is your first job, one page only. If you have 30 years experience in a certain field, make it as long as necessary.

The shortest resumes are the most effective for someone entering the job market. Most recruiters expect only a three page resume.
