I wrote my first computer program in 1960. My employment experience ranges
from 1965 to now and includes programming, management, computer systems
consulting, technical and strategic marketing, and freelance technical
writing. I have a one-page resume.
I think that a new grad who can't keep his/her resume to one page needs to
learn to write more concisely. ...RM
