In my last job search, I had a 2-page resume. I that most of my education
ended up on the back of the page. One interviewer asked me about my
education in the interview--he hadn't noticed that it continued on the
back of the page. After that, I also worried that personnel departments
would copy only the first side and forward that to the hiring manager. Now
I wouldn't put anything on the second side unless I was willing for the
people doing the hiring not to see it--and in that case, why should I put
it on my resume?
