I admit that the rules for contractors might require a lot more detail. But
even with 20+ years in the game, three pages is enough for me to hit the
highlights, especially with a targeted cover letter. (Remember too that we
can show a portfolio of samples to demonstrate our skills and versatility.)


Ah, but some of us can't do that.

The material I write for almost all of my clients is proprietary. I do not have permission, in most cases, to even discuss what I was writing about in general terms, let alone show samples! In some (very few) cases, I have permission to show a short sample (a select few pages) at an interview but not to leave said sample behind (I can't let it out of my sight).

So my resume has reached 5 pages (the long version, anyway).
