You don't. :-)

Leaving aside "standards," consider the alternatives. You could send a too-brief resume that hits all the high points and convinces the reader that they want to know more about you. Or you could send a too-long resume to an impatient reader. Which risk would you rather take?

A resume is like any other story: Better to be too short than too long.

Other than your assertion, how do we know such a "standard" exists?
