I agree. And I've seen horrible resumes with heaps of information
squashed onto one page, because the writer has "one page resume"
engraved in his/her brain.

I'm more concerned about being able to read the information easily, than
I am about flipping pages.

And you know what also gets my attention? A well-crafted resume on nice,
crisp, heavy Cranes stationery. I know, I know...scanners and faxes and
email (oh my!) are easier and faster, but there's something about the
weight and feel of good stationery....

I also use fountain pens, so there. ;-) :-)
