I recommend that you all pay attention to Buck's suggestions. Naturally I
would since I make almost exactly the same ones. The only place I part
company with him is on the 2-pagers. I agree that nobody is going to read the
second page, but it does give the resume a little more bulk (thud factor) and
it gives you a place to list the less important jobs that might should be
listed but nobody needs to read. I am not saying that you should have a
2-page resume, but that it probably doesn't hurt.

On the other hand, I completely agree that you have a short time--I would
never count on more than ten-seconds.

My "never, never, never" is never use a chronological resume unless that first
job on the list is the one that will get you hired.

Hoping this is useful.
