Re: Tips on Getting Hired
Tip #1: Don't send a 5-page resume.
Resumes should be a maximum of two pages. If yours is five pages, it
suggests that you are overly wordy, and have trouble prioritizing and
I don't think I've ever heard a complaint that my online resume is too long, but I did get such feedback
when I used to snailmail a version longer than two pages.
Even at 5+ pages with all of the forbidden bits like a Professional Goals section, the calls I get are from people who
seem to have read and comprehended my resume. Maybe I get roundfiled a lot more than I know? Doh!
