The key phrase here is "genuinely meaningful and pertinent information."
If you've been doing essentially the same job for 10 years but have had a
dozen or more employers or major contract clients, does pasting the same
description of your responsibilities in a dozen times meet that
description? Does every page of your 10-page resume leave the reader
yearning to turn the page to see what comes next? I've yet to see one that
had that effect on me.
