Should your resume be longer than one page or should you try to condense it to keep it on a page? There isn’t a yes or no answer, the length of your resume depends on the type of candidate you are and your level of experience.

According to a Saddleback College Resume Survey most employers want a one page resume unless the position requires experience. In fact, the percentage of employers looking for one page resumes increased to 48% last year, up from 35% in 2010.

Here are the details on what companies prefer:

  • One Page Resume – 47.7%
  • Two Page Resume – 11.4%
  • Depends on the level of the position – 34.1%
  • No preference – 6.8%

Even if you do have experience, it’s important to streamline your resume and to focus it on the most relevant experience and education you have as related to the jobs for which you are applying. If you are an experienced candidate, you don’t need to include more than 10 – 15 years of experience on your resume.

You also don’t need to include high school education or continuing education classes unless they enhance your candidacy.

It’s not necessary to say “references available upon request” on your resume. It’s understood that you will provide references, if required, as part of the job application process.

The other thing you can do is tighten up your position descriptions. Use a bulleted list and keep your job descriptions concise. Focus on your accomplishments, not your daily responsibilities.
